  • Fundrive 2023 Art Reveal

    Posted by Rob on February 1st, 2023

    Every year CKUW asks a local artist to donate work to promote CKUW and showcase the creativity of our community. This year we thank Mahri White for the amazing illustration that will appear on our T-shirts. Mahri White (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist and arts administrator from Winnipeg, MB. Her current mediums of focus include textiles, drawing, and digital painting. Mahri holds a BFA Honours from the University of Manitoba.

    Donors to our upcoming Fundrive may receive a T-shirt as a thankyou for gifts of $70 or more. Donations are a significant part of our annual budget, our goal this year is $60,000. Plan your gift today, larger donations can be split up into regular payments. Call 204-774-6877 during the drive to find out how your gift can help us!

    Fundrive 2023 starts 5pm on Friday February 10th.

  • Special Programming- What Should We Expect from an NDP Goverment?

    Posted by Sam on January 18th, 2023

    CKUW 95.9fm is proud to present a special broadcast of the Solidarity Winnipeg Podcast “What Should We Expect from an NDP Government?” on January 19th at 8am.

    Text from Solidarity Winnipeg

    With a provincial election coming this year it’s important to understand what the Manitoba NDP governments of 1999-2016 were like, why they did so little for working-class people, and what those of us who want radical change should learn from this. With guest Bronwyn Dobchuk-Land.

    Solidarity Winnipeg will be hosting a public discussion on Wednesday, January 25th at 7:00pm CST: “We know that the PCs and Liberals are parties of business, but what should we expect from an NDP government?”

    Please take a listen to our recent episode on this topic (Episode 22) before attending. Email us at [email protected] to register the event and receive the Zoom link!
