Every Friday we’ll be letting you know about a few choice happenings in the Exchange! If you have an idea for something to be featured, email nicholas@exchangedistrict.org with “Five Ways to Exchange” in the subject line.

THE TOUR

Winnipeg Ghost Walk  

The final Winnipeg Ghost Walks of the season happen tonight and tomorrow (with bonus walks happening Monday and Tuesday for Halloween)! Learn all about the haunted history of Old Market Square and more of the city’s spooky spots on a 90 minute tour that costs only $15 ($12 for students and seniors).

Visit winnipegghostwalk.com for more information.

THE SCREEN

Matthew Hannam Master Class @ Winnipeg Cinematheque  

Film editor Matthew Hannam cut his teeth at the Winnipeg Film Group and now works with such filmmakers as Denis Villeneuve (Enemy), Bruce McDonald (The Tracey Fragments) and the Daniels (Swiss Army Man), as well as on such hit TV shows as Netflix’s The OA and HBO’s Sensitive Skin. He’s coming to town on Saturday to deliver a master class in editing, and to screen one of his most recent works, the heartbreaking and intense James White. It’s your chance to learn from one of the industry’s rising stars, and to see a hometown boy at his best.

THE EATS

Skate or Dine IV @ Forth   

Skateboarder/Chef Michael Wyspianski’s annual five course meal event costs less than last year and has an even better menu – so it’s win win. With Winnipeg-themed names for each of the dishes (Purple City is a maple + beet glazed pork tenderloin, while the Harvest Moon kale salad features pickled lobster mushrooms and more) you’d best head to Forth on Sunday at 6:30pm (but get your tickets in advance first).

THE DISPLAY

Rand Heidinger @ Mayberry Fine Art

Winnipeg artist Rand Heidinger describes himself as an industrial modernist, meaning his work combines images of architecture and automobiles with his own unique and highly detailed worldview. His latest mixed media collection is showing at Mayberry Fine Art until tomorrow (October 28) so jump on the chance to check it out and maybe take something home.
