The Bowl of Hope is a unique event where potters donate and sell handmade bowls filled with ethic food to raise funds for the needy. Check out the photos of last years Bowl of Hope HAITI event.
At the Bowl of Hope event ticket holders choose their own pottery bowl (to keep) have it filled with ethnic food while enjoying live music (local bands) and an art auction. The evening is cultural, friendly and inspirational, as lives are changed through this effort.
Presently The Bowl of Hope has raised funds for those in need in countries such as India, Haiti, and Africa. The 2013 Bowl of Hope will raise funds for youth in Belize.
Starting February 22, 2013 tickets for the next Bowl of Hope event (on March 28, 2013) will be for sale at Streaming Cafe. Tickets are $25 and must be paid in exact cash or cheque. Contact Bowl of Hope for info on receiving a tax deductible receipt.
Celebrate Research with UBCO and CBC Daybreak
From March 4 to 8, CBC shines the spotlight on what’s happening in labs and libraries all over the campus.
Join Chris Walker between 5:30 and 8:30 throughout the week on Daybreak as we highlight some of the projects happening right now at the university.
And we plan to do some research of our own.
Daybreak asks “What is the purpose of public education” and looks at where education is going and where it needs to go.
Then, on Thursday March 7 from noon to 1 pm at the Streaming Cafe (596 Leon Ave) we’ll invite experts, teachers, parents, academics and you to have a say.
So help us Celebrate Research on CBC Daybreak.

We are pleased to be bringing back Keith Price for another excellent night of jazz tunes on Saturday February 16!
Having strummed since the sixth grade on his grandfather’s old guitar, Price landed his first gigs at age fifteen. First influenced by pop, punk and heavy metal, Price discovered jazz through the intensity and spirituality of John Coltrane. At age 19, Price began his formal studies at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. Upon his return to Winnipeg, Price turned down a scholarship at New School University in New York City and opted instead to stay in Steve Kirby’s newly established jazz program at the University of Manitoba. He has also studied in Boston with renowned guitar guru Mick Goodrick.
‘Breakfast Of Champions’, his debut album of original compositions, was released in the fall of ’09. The album was nominated for the TD Grand Prix Du Jazz and The Galaxie Rising Star awards at the 2010 Montreal International Jazz Fest.
Price’s sophomore album,’Gaia/Goya’, a mix of indie rock/pop covers and a six-part suite he wrote while traveling Canada, The U.S, and Europe peaked for two weeks at the #2 on the Canadian jazz radio chart (!earshot).
Ready for a 2013 release, the 29 year-old recently recorded a solo acoustic guitar album which features mellow and introspective arrangements of original compositions, wide raging pop and folk tunes, and a lovely jazz standard.
Streaming Cafe is pleased to present Windmills EP Release Saturday February 9.
The follow-up to “Keep Moving”, “Tilting” is the culmination of 6 months’ recording work and is in the final stages of being mastered into a polished gem in time for the release party.
This is a limited-ticket event, so be sure to purchase your tickets early!
