Join the Alberta Arts Gallery for an evening of performance and story-sharing, exploring the worlds we hope to build. In the rich tradition of Afro-futurism, they want to explore the hopes and dreams we hold for our futures. Inspired by the Black Muslim Futures Zine created by Black Muslim youth and artist in February of 2021 they want to explore questions such as: “The Revolution is won; what world are we building?” and “What were our ancestor’s wildest dreams?”
This Black History Month, The Art Gallery of Alberta and CARFAC Alberta are excited to have Dr. Syrus Marcus Ware and Elsa Robinson speak on the topic of how to navigate the art world from their perspective and experiences. This professional development program is open to artists and cultural workers looking for advice and resources in building their careers in the arts in Canada. This event will highlight experiences, education, and opportunities that showcase the artistic and cultural contributions of Black artists and cultural workers in Canada.
There is a true yearning to respond to
The singing River and the wise Rock.
So say the Asian, the Hispanic, the Jew
The African, the Native American, the Sioux,
The Catholic, the Muslim, the French, the Greek
The Irish, the Rabbi, the Priest, the Sheik,
The Gay, the Straight, the Preacher,
The privileged, the homeless, the Teacher.
They hear. They all hear
The speaking of the Tree.

Daughters of Zion Women Foundation is a registered charity whose primary aim is to help women from diverse backgrounds who are facing challenges, fighting battles silently and overwhelmed with career, family, marriage, children and other issues in life. They seek to empower women through their various initiatives and supports. Their programs include food drives, help for immigrants, meetings and retreats, seminars, workshops and prayer meetings. They also provide women with free Christian and motivational books to help support our spiritual and emotional needs. Many women in Edmonton have been blessed by the meals supplied by the Foundation. During the pandemic, many of us had our freezers filled with shrimp, African food supplies and more. The Foundation does many things in the community: they hold regular prayer meetings. Our personal favourite is the Prayer War Room for women, which holds every first Saturday of the month – from 12-1 pm.

Her latest attention is couponing, and she has taken to educating the rest of us about the real benefits of couponing.
Given the rate of inflation and the exaggerated costs of living, it probably makes a lot of sense to learn a thing or two about couponing. Couponing can be time-consuming and frustrating if you are new to couponing.
To become good at couponing, you need to do your research, use store flyers, check expiration dates, use a price book, ask for help, organize your coupons and get organized. This is all according to Mila Kalajdzieva on the reviewlution website.
