Hashing it out with Edmonton’s creators, makers, innovators and YOU!

Edmonton’s NextGen hosts #YegIdeaXchange - Connecting Community in Edmonton

This is a free event but please RSVP and let us know you're attending!

This is the third in a three part dialogue series held by the Voice Working Group of Edmonton’s NextGen.

A panel composed of local creators, makers, and innovators will speak about their ideas, projects and insight around Connecting and Building Community in Edmonton. The panel will encourage attendees to get involved in and shape the evening’s discussion, leading to a real dialogue allowing participants to hash out issues, opinions, and ideas surrounding Community Building in Edmonton.

This wonderful panel includes:

She is a Group Mentor with the Boys and Girls Club at the McCauley club in Edmonton's inner city. She is also the Youth Director of the Edmonton's only inner city rugby club, the Edmonton Clansmen and is a junior girls coach at the rep and club level.

Doug Stewart
Douglas Dollars / Entrepreneur / Asked frequently enough at arts and social events about what else was happening in Edmonton, Douglas began to joke “You should subscribe to my newsletter.” The joke became reality, the obscure and cool parts of Edmonton arts and music gained new followings, and How to Douglas is a service for which he's stopped in public about at least three times a week.

Amber Niemeier
Director of communications and advocacy at the YWCA
