Here are my picks for the Top 5 things to do this week:
February 18 at 12-5pm
SNAP - Society of Northern Alberta Print-Artists
Get inky with your family at SNAP Printshop this Family Day! Bring along your kiddos, grandmother, uncle, cousin, step-sister, in-laws, or anyone you consider your family to screenprint an edition of fun illustrations. Pick from a wide range of illustrations and drawings made by local Edmonton artists and designers for your edition of screenprints. Then, use rollers, ink, lino blocks, and stamps to embellish and fill in your printed images to use as colouring pages. There will also be a colouring station set up if you wish to spend the whole day being creative and colourful!
It’s $15 per person (which gets you 3 prints to work with).
February 19 at 6-9pm
Square 1 Coffee
Come explore one coffee origin processed three ways. Natural Process, Honey Process and Washed. The Square One folks will take you through what the difference is and why the same coffee can taste completely different depending on how it is processed.
$5 + service fees
February 20 at 7pm
Edmonton Convention Centre
Terry Crews is a lot of things: an actor, athlete, author and artist. Audiences may know him as the NFL linebacker, the face of Old Spice and most recently as Sergeant Terry Jeffords on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. These are just some of the roles Terry is known for and now, in what is arguably his most important role yet, Terry takes on modern manhood. As an activist, memoirist and one of the silence breakers of the #metoomovement, Terry Crews has become a powerful voice in the conversation about what being a modern man is all about and the role men play in creating a safer world for women and girls.
All proceeds will support programs and services of the Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters.
