THE FALL ARTS GUIDE

Regina’s fall culture calendar: too much of a good thing?

by Gregory Beatty

The day this issue hits the streets, the indigenous arts festival Performing Turtle Island opens at the University of Regina. Then there’s the Dunlop opening for Sympathy for the Institution to look forward to on Sept. 18. And Culture Days is Sept. 25-27, with everything from book launches and poetry readings to art walks, concerts and urban planning forums to attend. And on Oct. 6, CBC foreign correspondent Derek Stoffel delivers the Minifie Lecture at the School of Journalism. And… well, you get the idea.

It’s always a bittersweet exercise for me compiling this annual list of arts and culture events happening in Regina until Dec. 31. There’s so much stuff I’d love to check out, but there’s only so many hours in the day (not to mention dollars in the wallet, and gas in the proverbial human energy tank) so there’s no way I can possibly attend more than a fraction of things on my wish-list.

Hopefully, you’ll feel the same sense of regret as I do when you check out the listings (with the odd spotlight mixed in). Hopefully, also, you’ll make an effort to get out to as many events as possible in the next few months. Regina’s got some amazing homegrown talent, and some quality artists tour through town too. We’ve even supplied you with a bingo card to spur you on. There’s no jackpot to be won but the more spots you cross off, the richer your life will be. Trust us.
