Speaking & Signing Conversations with Monuments in Winnipeg (Kindred Productions).
"If you listen carefully and observe intently, you may discover a strange phenomenon-the statues in Winnipeg speak. They all have a story to tell... They have weathered fierce winters and infamous winds... They have stood firm as a prophetic presence... They call us to listen and invite us to gain insight. They have seen much, maybe even you as you've passed by."
With insightful historical and personal reflection, Conversations with Monuments in Winnipeg brings to life to some of Winnipeg’s famous landmarks.
