Call/Response is a book about live music and youth culture in Winnipeg. It is being produced in support of one of Canada's most vital resources - Kids Help Phone . Call/Response will not only show us the musicians, but will feature the energy of the young crowds that make for a great show. This book of art and literature will collaborate works by local photographers, writers, visual artists, and collectors inspired by the Winnipeg music scene. Submissions are open to the public.
The project’s goal is to raise money for Kids Help Phonewhile increasing awareness for issues facing youth. The book will sell for $25; a minimum of $10 from each sale will be donated to Kids Help Phone. This project is currently seeking support from local businesses and individuals. In order to cover production and print costs, Call/Response must raise $15,000. We accept all donations but ask for increments of $100, $250, $500 and $1000 to help with our goal. All sponsors will have their name and logo printed on a dedicated page with size determined by donation.
