- Imagining the Green New Deal – Thursday, April 23, 8pm
Join the Council of Canadians Fredericton Chapter in imagining a Green New Deal. In this session we will look at a few bold proposals for real transformations in our response to COVID-19, and in our public services.
You’ll hear from George Nickerson from Fredericton Local 054 of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers about their campaign called Delivering Community Power, which proposes to vastly reshape the services of Canada Post to include postal banking, clean energy generation, seniors’ care, and a made-in-Canada electric fleet of vehicles.
Green Jobs Oshawa organizer Rebecca Keetch will address her group’s bold and urgent proposal to retool the mostly vacant GM factory in Oshawa, Ontario, so it can produce medical equipment immediately, and over the longer term transition to manufacturing electric vehicles.
We need to start imagining how we can rebuild our post-pandemic society so that it works for everyone and the planet. We can start now by supporting these two exciting proposals and start to think about creating our own bold proposals in our communities.

Weekly on Wednesday, until May 1, 2020
Connexion ARC is launching another block of dates in our series of Crit Nights, this time in virtual space.

We welcome artists at any stage in their career to network with fellow artists, practice delivering constructive criticism to others, and contextualize their work as a valuable contribution to the community – or just ask for support & encouragement. Although the session will be facilitated from a visual arts perspective, all creative disciplines are welcome to participate.
Please join us at 7pm on Wednesdays and 3pm on Sundays, for as long as necessary.
Wednesday April 22, 7pm
Sunday April 26, 3pm
Wednesday April 29, 7pm
A maximum of 9 artists will be able to share their work per session, but once the meeting is at capacity others may join to observe and offer feedback. To reserve a presenting spot, please contact info [at] connexionarc [dot] org.
