Pajama Jam 2016 / Sat, Oct 1 (6 pm)

It’s not often that you can wear your favourite PJs outside of your home, but at this fundraising event, which raises money for CRIPSiE, you’re not only allowed to wear it but encouraged. Come in your PJs and bed head and enjoy a cereal bar, cash bar, Nina Haggerty print making crafts, silent auction, silent videos on loop, child-friendly stories, dance party and more. There will be pizza too, because a pijama party isn’t complete without pizza! (Latitude 53, $10 suggested donation)

Camsell Film Screening / Mon, Oct 3 (6 pm)

If you’re from Edmonton, you’d have heard the stories about the now defunct Charles Camsell Hospital. Now the hospital is center stage in this short documentary produced by the Edmonton Heritage Council, which explores the many stories and perspectives of the hospital. Following the film, there will be a panel discussion on reconciliation and Camsell with some of those interviewed for the film, including former hospital patients and staff.
