    The Granny Squares for Warmth (GSFW) group was created in November 2020 as a Barrhaven-based group with a mission to create and donate hand-made blankets in the Ottawa area. ​

    Group members arrange for donations of yarn, crochet or knit granny squares, join the squares into lap blankets, baby blankets or single bed blankets and donate the blankets to organizations such as long-term care homes, women’s shelters, homeless shelters, maternity wards and more. ​

    In addition to blankets, members have also made and donated shawls, hats, and baby wear. ​

    Join us to crochet and join granny squares, to share and learn crochet stitches and techniques and to build a sense of community by making blankets for those in need. Everyone is welcome!

    To celebrate National Indigenous History Month, we have partnered with the National Film Board to showcase a great selection of Indigenous films that explore the experiences and cultures of the diverse Indigenous communities who live on the part of Turtle Island we call Canada. Each feature-length film will be preceded by a few short films with related themes and topics. Join us Thursdays in June as we celebrate the art of film, elevate Indigenous voices, and embrace the power of representation.

    Tonight's selection offers tales of the work of keeping nations and traditions alive :

    Short film: Lake

    English with French subtitles, 5 min, 2019

    Cree director Alexandra Lazarowich riffs off classic verité cinema to craft a contemporary portrait of Métis women net fishing in Northern Alberta.

    Short film: Now Is the Time

    English with French subtitles, 16 min, 2019

    In 1969, the community of Old Massett raised a totem pole carved by Robert Davidson, the first new pole in Haida Gwaii in almost a century. 50 years later, a Haida filmmaker remixes the incredible archival footage and animation to reflect on the important event.

    Feature film: The Invisible Nation

    Bilingual audio with English subtitles, 93 minutes, 2007

    The Algonquin once lived in harmony with the vast territory they occupied. This balance was upset when the Europeans arrived in the 16th century. Gradually, their Aboriginal traditions were undermined and their natural resources plundered. Today, barely 9,000 Algonquin are left. They live in about 10 communities, often enduring abject poverty and human rights abuses. These Aboriginal people are suffering the threat to their very existence in silence. Richard Desjardins and Robert Monderie have decided to sound the alarm before it's too late.


    Pour célébrer le Mois national de l'histoire autochtone, nous nous sommes associés à l'Office national du film pour présenter une grande sélection de films autochtones qui explorent les expériences et les cultures des diverses communautés autochtones qui vivent sur la partie de l'île de la Tortue que nous appelons le Canada. Chaque long métrage sera précédé de quelques courts métrages traitant de thèmes et de sujets connexes. Rejoignez-nous les jeudis du mois de juin pour célébrer l'art cinématographique, élever les voix indigènes et embrasser le pouvoir de la représentation.

    La sélection de ce soir propose des récits à propos de l'effort de donner un nouveau souffle de vie aux peuples et leurs traditions :

    Court métrage: Le lac

    Anglais avec sous-titres français, 5 min, 2019

    La réalisatrice crie Alexandra Lazarowich emprunte aux classiques du cinéma vérité pour réaliser un portrait contemporain de femmes métisses qui pratiquent la pêche au filet dans le nord de l’Alberta.

    Court métrage: Maintenant plus que jamais

    Anglais avec sous-titres français, 16 min, 2019

    À l’âge de 22 ans, le sculpteur d’origine haïda Robert Davidson a grandement contribué à changer l’histoire des gens de sa communauté. Grâce au soutien de sa famille, il a pu sculpter le tout premier totem du village de Old Masset en près d’un siècle. Avec des animations spectaculaires, des entrevues touchantes et des images d’archives, Maintenant plus que jamais dépeint le portrait de trois générations des clans de l’Aigle et du Corbeau qui ont travaillé ensemble à ériger le totem à la manière de leurs ancêtres jusqu’à ce qu’il trône, fort et fier.

    Long métrage: Le peuple invisible

    Bilingue avec sous-titres anglais, 93 minutes, 2007

    Dans ce long métrage documentaire, le duo de réalisateurs derrière L'erreur boréale et Trou Story, Richard Desjardins et Robert Monderie, raconte l'histoire de la nation algonquine du Québec et dénonce ses conditions de vie actuelle.
