Winnipeggers can now experience Downtown Winnipeg in a whole new way — virtually in Minecraft. A SketchUp model of Downtown Winnipeg was imported into Minecraft, giving kids (and kids at heart!) the opportunity to strategize about how the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ can help downtown go from good to great, with all of the to-scale buildings serving as a backdrop for virtual intervention.
The Winnipeg Art Gallery has joined the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ’s Indigenous Artwalk by adding four Inuit sculptures located at Portage Place Shopping Centre.
Today, Mayor Brian Bowman commended the success of the Community Homeless Assistance Team (CHAT) and confirmed the City of Winnipeg’s commitment of $150,000 to support additional outreach workers.
