CITY STORIES with the Winnipeg Tarot Company

September 25 - October 31

City Stories was one of the most innovative and original projects in the ARTS FOR ALL program. Using an original deck of tarot cards, replete with Winnipeg iconography, a team of ten artists known as the "Winnipeg Tarot Company" provided free card readings in various public locations throughout the city for five weeks. Participant audience members could only “pay” for their readings by relating their own personal Winnipeg story.  Recordings were posted daily on the website, and an archive of stories will be kept at the Winnipeg Arts Council.

They are available for purchase for $30 at the offices of the Winnipeg Arts Council, 103-110 Princess St., M-F 9-5. Cash or cheque only.

About the Winnipeg Tarot Company

The founders and creators of the Winnipeg Tarot Co., Lorri Millan and Shawna Dempsey, are internationally recognized master oracles, renowned for their skills as geomancers and artists. While Dempsey and Millan sleep throughout Winnipeg’s dark, nine-month winter, the brief summer months inspire the creation of delusional performances and videos reflecting their intentions of world domination (including Lesbian National Parks and Services and We’re Talking Vulva). Critics opine that this frenzied artmaking has hastened global warming.
