For the first time ever, APIRG has published a yearly almanac, available for $2-10 in the APIRG office and other community spaces around the city. This project was curated and organized by U of A student and community organizer, Ryanna Brattland, and designed by architecture student and graphic designer, Joy Olagoke. The almanac includes work from over a dozenlocal artists and writers.
An almanac is a book, published yearly, which contains useful information for a particular group of people. A farmers’ almanac contains important meteorological info, a witches’ almanac tells you about the movements of the stars, and so the APIRG almanac is full of content for folks who care about local art, community organizing, and social justice. Since APIRG is based at the University of Alberta, we include extra information relevant to U of A students.
There are three main components to this almanac: community resource guides, a weekly planner, and creative content. We hope you will use it to connect with community, organize your days, and inspire the work you do to make your communities more just. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, corrections, and if you’re interested in submitting to next year’s edition!
Come and get yours anytime, they’re going quick!
