Schmoozy : It’s the last weekend to engage in Latitude 53’s annual fundraiser exhibition, the brilliantly-named Schmoozy, which helps them deliver all that free programming. And while in-person schmoozing has been tricky, if not dangerous, you can still head into the artist-run gallery, masked and vaxxed. Or, if you like, look at the works by the 14 artists on sale online at schmoozy.ca/shop — including Lauren Crazybull, Matthew Cardinal, Morgan Melenka, Alma Louise Visscher and others — it’s up to you. Latitude members also receive 10% off their purchases, so if you’re thinking of joining, now’s the time. Saturday between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., PS, there’s a live DJ set happening during the art pickup hours by Canadian DJ, producer and vocalist Hood Joplin. There’s also free delivery of anything you pick up to Edmonton, Sherwood Park or St. Albert.
Details : 12 – 5 p.m. Friday at Latitude 53 (10242 106 St.), no charge
