The Make Something Edmonton launch party is sold out.
Starting on March 22, we’ll take it on the road. We’ll make presentations, visit schools and clubs and dinner parties and community halls and church basements and corporate lunchrooms. You will invite us. We’ll entertain and inspire you. We’ll ask, “What are you making?”
There might not always be a cash bar, of course.
The quick sell-out was, we repeat, a happy but sad surprise. To make sure everyone who wanted to be there on Thursday, March 21 feels equally involved and invited, we have put together a MAKE SOMETHING EDMONTON LAUNCH PARTY IN A BOX.

If you’ve gathered for a Make Something Edmonton party and, by some disastrous disaster, the Edmonton Journal livestream doesn’t work, we suggest dancing and project planning. If you’re keen on watching Edmonton, how about a documentary by Niobe Thompson or perhaps a short film by this fellow:
