This is not your parents' election forum! interVivos is bringing A Provincial Affair back to the community on Wednesday, May 10. Purchase your ticket here: https://aprovincialaffair.eventbrite.ca/
In what we call a “non-partisan unforum” interVivos offers Edmontonians a wide range of expert-led content, covering topics in affordability and jobs, healthcare, and reconciliation and anti-oppression.
We are a local non-partisan non-profit that has been curating election events since 2006.
A Provincial Affair will allow attendees to interact with local experts about the key issues for Edmontonians in the provincial election.
The hot topics were determined by research MacEwan students completed earlier this spring.
Besides hearing from the experts, attendees will discuss these topics with other engaged Edmontonians over libations and light snacks in a small group setting. We will also have some door prizes donated by local businesses.
Fifty percent of all ticket proceeds will be donated to the Edmonton Food Bank, an organization interVivos has long supported in the community.
The prices of our events are set at cost, but we do our best to make our events accessible to all. If you require a discounted price, we encourage you to reach out to us at email@example.com.
