Celebrate People’s History Gallery

If you hadn’t heard already, the Skillshare has an excellent exhibition of Just Seeds’ Celebrate People’s History posters right now. The vernissage was a success, and thank you to everyone who came. If you still haven’t see it, or want to see it again, the gallery will be open every Saturday during open studio, 1PM-6PM. We also have prints of some posters for sale, and will until the end of the month or until they sell out.

Here’s some pictures of the lovely gallery!


If you missed out…

The Skillshare had a really neat exhibit of archived acetates for the AGM. If you missed out, here’s some snapshots!

Celebrate People’s History Gallery Show

We here at Ste Emilie are super proud to present the Just Seed’s Celebrate People’s History poster show. Just Seeds has done amazing work and is coming with a few new posters to add to the series as well. The vernissage will be held this Saturday, June 8 starting at 6pm and ending at 10pm. The gallery will also be open every Saturday of this month during open studios (1pm-6pm). An ending night will be announced this month as well, with activities! Posters are totally beautiful, and will be on sale all month as well. We hope to see you there!

AGM Reportback

We all at Ste-Émilie Skillshare are happy to state: the first annual general meeting was a great success! Thank you to all who attended, who have supported the skillshare over the years, and who made this possible. We couldn’t have done it without you.

At the general meeting, we adopted a fresh and official constitution, gave updates on finances, outlined some planned activity, and elected a new board of directors. We’d like to welcome to the board Tasha, Marc, Marie, Frankie, Parneet, and Sasha. If you are interested in seeing the updated constitution, it can be viewed on this website. There is a link on the sidebar, to both an english and french version.

With the AGM behind us, we are now looking to the future of the skillshare. Some brief updates include:

After a hiatus of open studios (due to tragic pipe ruptures), we are now happy to announce its continuation. Open studio will resume as normal after this weekend: come in and get artsy Saturdays 1-6PM. We will be closed for the Anarchist Bookfair this Saturday, May 25. Feel free to come stop by our table both Saturday and Sunday, 10-5. We will be located in the Centre culturel Georges-Vanier at 2450 Rue Workman.

For more information on the bookfair, check out their website here:

We are also planning fun events for the future! Be sure to check up through our mailing list, or on our facebook page. Some highlights include: workshops! Celebrate People’s History gallery showing! Gallery Residency!
