On behalf of the Board and Staff of Storefront Manitoba, we want to express our sincere gratitude to our valued partners, supporters, and volunteers who made 2019 a great success!

We would also like to take this opportunity to extend a heartfelt thanks to our founder, Architect David Penner. He was the driving force of everything we do and his commitment to StorefrontMB was infinite. We look forward to carrying on his passion and vision throughout our organization into the future.

We have an exciting agenda for 2020 in the works and hope to see you all in attendance. ✨

Jan 24, 2020 Portal X on Display at the Winnipeg New Music Festival!

Portal X, a StorefrontMB initiative, will be on display at the Winnipeg New Music Festival at the Centennial Concert Hall this weekend, January 25th to the 31st!

Portal X is an inhabitable sculpture, instrument, and a metaphor that invites contemplation of the temporal and the infinite, created and produced by architect Richard Derksen with Monteyne Architecture Works. Local composers Jesse Krause & Darren Day have written discrete streams of electronic and chorale music, which intersect.

Special thanks to a great team: Builder Ted Geddert of Holz Construction, composers Jesse Krause & Darren Day, Studio wizard John Schritt of Channels Audio, Graphic Designer Kat Polischuk, and our sponsor Manitoba Association of Architects
