In Town Hall Meeting style, at the Gas Station Theatre, 445 River Avenue, at 7 p.m. poster
A Media Panel will discuss the mainstream media's "Code of Silence" regarding the overwhelming evidence that the attacks of September 11th, 2001 were an "inside job." Speakers will include author and media critic Barrie Zwicker, veteran journalist and broadcaster Lesley Hughes, and former Winnipeg Free Press editorial columnist Dallas Hansen. Following the panel will be a performance by yours truly, The Antigravity Project!
In Annuit Corruptus, we wrote about concerns and conspiracies as they happened. With the Truth Movement platform now growing, we have new material and are searching for solutions to the truths we know. The truth is, we must talk to our family, friends and colleagues in order to remain optimistic about our community development and our responsibilities to Manitoba and Canada. Asking questions furthers our intelligence and stops assumptions. In this World that is 'at our fingertips' we must be mindful that we may be alienating our next door neighbors. The information Age is upon us, let it help us build tight relationships in our lives instead of pulling us apart at the foundations.

ArtSonic, a UMFM 101.5 Fundraiser, Ramada Entertainment Centre, 331 Garry Street (formerly the Garrick Theatre).
ArtSonic, a methodology to 'preserve, temporarily holding free-art in a real-time harmonic'. Designed to showcase performers creating Art Music -- ArtSonic brought together a diverse assortment of musicians, filmmakers, video, still, and spoken word artists to one space for one evening of continuous entertainment.
Much has been said about Winnipeg's reputation as a centre of artistic experimentation and expression. Artist Murray Toews was in the audience last year, and so inspired by the vision of ArtSonic he offered up his skills as a video artist/animator/producer to help curate this year's show. "ArtSonic is an event that takes a cross section of hidden and general undercurrents existing within Winnipeg's alternative art and music scenes, and 'responds' by merging them into a general theme and location," says Toews.
The Antigravity Project released a new song "Metronomicon" and art music video "The Story of Metronomicon" produced by Brad Fenwick, Paulette LaFortune of Sweet Spot Productions and Richard Altman, video collage artist. Rob, Jamie, Kyra, Brett and Henri joined us on stage and performed their piece on larger than life props made by Henri Chatelain. The band played a stellar show and fun was had by all. Looking forward to next year!!!
