100 days of need and greed

BY KRISTINA SCHULTZ LINDBERG
@ VOL 55 ON FEB 09, 2016

Kristina Schultz, Designer, 100 days of need and greed

Kristina needs us to change things and step up for the planet.

Schultz speaks about the material dream we're upholding, not knowing what our actual human needs are. She challenges this and makes a groundbreaking change in her everyday life. By emptying her apartment she starts to produce material things, driven by the need for them. By doing this she makes room for reflection - reflection over needs and greed.

Compassion is Photography

BY LAINA BROWN
@ VOL 28 ON NOV 24, 2016

Laina Brown is an art student at the U of M, a social advocate, and owner of her own business Laina Brown Photography. She loves to enter into people’s monumental events or everyday lives to document and artistically render their memories as a collaborator with them. This love has taken her to spaces like Winnipeg’s “Meet Me at the Bell Tower”, to spaces such as Auschwitz and Treblinka with the March of Remembrance and Hope, to the boarders of Eastern Turkey, and to beautiful weddings all across Western Canada. In each place it is the people she is most interested in, and how they make meaning from their environments - listening and compassion as the keys to successful photography.
