Join us in the holiday home stretch for a night of an equally shared stage of songwriters and steel guitar sounds. The Hague Gallery warms up with the vibrations and pitch, words and whimsy of Devon Floyd and Ian Cameron, and Piper Burns and Andy Biesel. Each duo will trade songs back and forth to keep up the momentum of the evening. A show you do not want to miss!
According to the UN, nearly 21 million people worldwide are victims of forced labour: trapped in jobs which they were coerced or deceived into, and which they cannot leave. Trafficking, a form of modern slavery, is often thought of as something that happens far off in a distant world, with the image of captured persons being smuggled across borders. Yet forced labour and sexual exploitation have strong connections to Saskatchewan, which is both a destination and a source of individuals who are trafficked within Canada. Stigma can keep discussions of human trafficking in the dark, masking the true scope of the issues facing trafficked persons.
Join us to hear a diversity of viewpoints on human rights and dignity in a world where people work to provide for themselves and their families, sometimes at all costs.
Everyone welcome! Free appetizers!
This event is hosted by Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation (SCIC) in partnership with NASHI – www.nashi.ca
Are you a guitarist who has been playing for a while, but doesn’t know anything about theory or improvisation? Or maybe you have some theory up your sleeve but are in need of some guitarists to practice with? Maybe you like the company of cool people enjoying some music on a relaxed Sunday afternoon.
At the Sunday guitar hangout, musician and author Erik Mehlsen (aka Del Suelo) will cover some basic music theory and explain how it applies to creativity on the guitar. Following this 30 minute lesson, guitarists will be encouraged to stick around and jam with each other, trading tips and insights on what they’ve just learned. The intention of the workshop is to build a community of guitarists and provide a space for those wishing to improve their craft. While this is a monthly event, there is no pre-requisite required – first timers are welcome to drop in anytime.
*Your donations will go to paying the workshop & jam facilitator for his time as well as the venue fees.

We begin our New Year right with the sounds and styling’s of fiddles and pipes, and a cozy space to enjoy the excitement in.
With an opening act of young musicians, and a feature set that launches a brand new album, there is certainty that there will not be a still foot in the house. Strong performers, and solid sounds will engage audience and performer alike, for tonight, and if you’re lucky enough to take an album home with you, for day’s to come. [Read more…]
Regina Word Up Youth is Regina’s only youth-specific spoken word performance series.
A Youth Stage is an opportunity to share work with our peers and greater community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for youth (14-22) who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams. Rants, stories, jokes (the punnier, the better!) songs, or poems are all welcome on our stage.
After the youth stage, we host a community stage for ALL AGES. A community stage is an opportunity to share work with our community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for folks who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams.
A poetry slam is a dialogue between audience and performer. It is a competitive event wherein spoken word artists share their work in a high-spirited, fast-paced environment to an often uproarious crowd. [Read more…]
