Packingtown -- Maria Dunn in concert
Calgary Public Library - Central Library
616 Macleod Trail SE, Calgary
Sunday, 29 May 2016 (3:00 to 5:00 PM)

The video ballad Packingtown shares the vibrant people’s history of North Edmonton through original songs and video interviews with people who worked at the meatpacking plants and lived in the community during the height of the meatpacking industry there (early 1900s to 1980s). 

The 60-minute live music and video performance weaves music and lyrics written by Juno-nominated songwriter Maria Dunn, with video footage, historical photographs, and video interviews collected and edited by videographer Don Bouzek of Ground Zero Productions (GZP) and historian-curator Catherine C. Cole with the support of northeast resident Janice Melnychuk. 

The performance will feature Maria Dunn accompanied by Shannon Johnson of the Juno award winning Celtic world-fusion band, The McDades.

The creation of Packingtown was funded by the Edmonton Heritage Council, Edmonton and District Labour Council, Alberta Historical Resources Foundation, the Alberta Federation of Labour and UFCW Local 1118.

Prostate Cancer Canada - #PlaidForDad Kick Off

This week, we officially launched ‪#‎PlaidForDad‬, asking Canadians from coast to coast to coast to pledge to wear plaid on June 17th to help raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer.

We are thrilled to once again be supported by our National Ambassador, Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy. At the launch event, we honoured the men and women in uniform who protect Canadians every day, and challenged all Canadians to put on a new kind of uniform on June 17th – plaid! – to help protect the 1 in 8 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
