Followed by questions and community discussion.

Nonviolent Communication Saskatoon presents...

Activating Connection through Nonviolent Communication

 

7pm Tuesday, March 19
The Stand Community Organizing Centre
Let’s explore Nonviolent Communication to fortify the foundations of social change, systemic change and the root workings of any relationship internally, interpersonally and in our wider community. Through regular, open drop-in meetings we will challenge and transform our often invisibly painful and existing disconnections with life and each other into vision and actions to sustain our reach and reception- whatever the distance. Join us for a continuous drop-in study on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month. No registration is needed.

More info on the Facebook Event Page.

Sum Theatre presents...

The Last Sunday

 

Last Sunday of the month
733 Broadway Avenue, Saskatoon

Back by popular demand! 

On the last Sunday of every month Sum Theatre invites the public to join us at 733 Broadway Ave for a free, one-hour performance experience. It’s as fresh as a show gets as our community’s playwrights, musicians, ranters and celebrity interviewees delve into some of that month’s top news stories and events. 

“It’s theatre of the now,” says artistic director Joel Bernbaum. “Art is more relevant than it has ever been before. It has the power to take people down a new path of understanding the world around them. We believe these performances and the discussions they generate will build a better community.”

How much? It's free!

For more information, visit the Facebook Event Page.


 

 

Become_Monthly_Sustainer.jpg


The Stand does a lot with very little, but to keep the momentum going, we need to reach $2200/month of sustainer donations.

We're already half way there with 50 sustainer donors contributing between $10 - $50 each!

With another $1000 more per month from 50 more people, we'll reach our goal and be able to:  

  1. Increase The Stand Coordinator position to two days a week to keep The Stand growing strong.
  2. Remain independently funded so that we're not beholden to the agendas of government and corporate funders.
  3. Replenish the Community Organizing Fund that supports grassroots organizing.

To become one of The Stand's Sustainers, please click on this link and choose the option: “Become a Monthly Sustainer of The Stand." Or just let us know by email: organize@thestandcentre.ca.
