Art and Unrest

You may remember the Industrial Workers of the
World (IWW) from picket lines and protests, but
on January 5th you will have an opportunity to
see another side of the Edmonton Branch of this
dynamic fighting union. The IWW is about more
than just bread-and-butter issues; it is also
cultural organization belonging to a world that
does not yet exist. Art need not be partisan to
be political; there are few things more
revolutionary than individual expression in a
world where economics dominate culture.

The IWW is continuing its long-held practice of
supporting working class art and culture. From
Joe Hill to the early Modernists, the IWW has
been at the forefront of the struggle not just
for bread, but for roses too. On January 5th,
2006, join us at the opening of our Art Show at Remedy Café.

Free Food will be provided.

Address: 8631 109 Street NW
Time/Date: 7pm, January 5th, 2006

Hi wobbly, I'd really appreciate it if you or someone in the IWW there could provide photos or a weblink. Sounds like a great event! Good luck.

Wow, thanks for the interest. We'll definitely have pictures after the event on thursday, and the art is up all month. So if anyone reading this is in Edmonton and can't see it on thursday they can alway check it out later on.

As for a weblink it seems the announcement isn't uploaded on the website (our website person is on vacation out of town and one else knows a thing about this stuff). But to check out our wesbite feel free to visit:
