What people are saying:

Thank you for putting on such an imaginative and daring series of programmes, for honoring Purdy, and for inviting my little buddy, Neil Besner, and me to participate. We both thought it was the right thing and better still a hoot. This was a wild and wonderful scheme! A fabulous act of imagination and daring. - Poet Dennis Cooley (on Mondo!Purdy 2009)

RETIRED/ON HIATUS

Until webmaster Sherman updates our menu system, this is where you can find some of our retired/defunct/on hiatus series. In the beginning, we did something called It Came from the Vault. It was a film series that may or may not come back. Maybe if everyone throws their Blu-rays and plasma TVs away. Our first reading series was a themed series by the name of Free Your Mind. This was our first collaboration with several writers who have since become great friends of Aqua, including Susie Moloney, Laurie Block, Anita Daher and Sarah Klassen. Sometimes a great series comes along that we can't say no to. In Conversation with Ron Robinson was one of these. Ron is a former CBC Radio heavyweight, and co-founder of McNally Robinson Booksellers. Unfortunately, Ron is very busy and is taking some time off from the series. Hopefully it will return when his schedule permits. Mary Louise Chown and her stable of storytellers are also taking a bit of a break. Magic of One Storytelling Concerts were happening four times a year or so. And last but not least, every year we have a Fringe show (or two) as part of the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival. Past events for currently-running series can be found via the grey links on the menu above.
