MayWorks 2008 was the most ambitious of MayWorks in several years with 34 events and a total attendance of approximately 1900. Planning for MayWorks 2009 is already underway. Next year, of course, is the 9oth Anniversary of the Winnipeg General Strike – so it will be a special year with unique artistic presentations and special activities to mark this important anniversary.
MayWorks draws its inspiration from art and culture that reflect the struggles of working people and one of the significant events in Canadian history in terms of that struggle was the Winnipeg General Strike. Watch this site for announcements about MayWorks 2009 events.
We also want to draw your attention to the new calendar on which we will publicize events of interest to the community.
