Creating Community

A community is more than a collection of buildings and people.  Community is organic – a living entity whose identity evolves along with its formative elements.  Winnipeg, with its diversity of history and culture, is a community of communities.  How do we embrace our unique ‘community’ in a way that promotes a unified vision – a community defined by common purpose and will – while celebrating and encouraging the diversity within?  How do we encourage all Winnipeggers to take part in, and benefit from this ‘community’?

Brent Bellamy – Number Ten Architectural Group
Kent Paterson – YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg
Diane Roussin – Winnipeg BOLDNESS Project

Creativation

The greatest natural resource is the human mind – its capacity for creativity, innovation and inspiration.  It is this natural resource which powers successful communities today and tomorrow.  Winnipeg’s creative output is second to none.  A fusion of arts, culture, innovation, technology and economics, creativation is Winnipeg’s calling card to the world.  Where is creativation happening in Winnipeg?   What can individuals and business do to spark and nurture creativation?  How do we  encourage creativation from all segments of our community?  What are the opportunities to brand creativation for Winnipeg?

Winnipeg Looking Ahead

What does the future hold for Winnipeg?  What are the defining aspects of Winnipeg 10, 20, 50 and 100 years from now?  Winnipeg’s future will arrive, one way or another – are we going to be passive witnesses to its arrival or active stewards?  If the latter, much work is needed to define 22nd century Winnipeg.  Describe your Winnipeg of the future and what it looks like. What would you do to make it happen?

Anders Swanson – 2014 Winter Bike Congress
Mohammad Almaleki – CEO Manitoba
Johanna Wood – Junior Chamber International Winnipeg
