Join Edmonton’s arts & culture community for a one-night cabaret where arts and politics collide! Wrecking Ball Alberta is an opportunity for you to witness first class Albertan performance, and join patrons, artists and politicians in a lively discussion about our shared vision for Alberta.
The evening will include performances by Ahmed Knowmadic and Colin Matty of Breath In Poetry, Ainsley Hillyard of Good Women Dance Collective, singer-songwriter Tyler Butler, scenes from Azimuth Theatre‘s Prairie Apocalypse and more.
Candidates from all parties are invited. Interested candidates will be provided the opportunity to address the audience for two minutes each, after which candidates are invited to participate in a brief moderated forum. We will take approximately five questions at random from the audience. Following the performances and forum, all Wrecking Ball Alberta guests are invited to tip a glass and continue the conversation!
