Winnipeg General Strike
Few events have had a larger impact on the Canadian labor movement than that of the bloody Winnipeg General Strike. This media piece provides visitors with an understanding of the strike’s roots in early twentieth- century Winnipeg, and the impact it had on Canada’s labor movement. A film of an archival graphic map of 1919 is overlaid — using projection mapping software techniques — onto a physical, dimensionalized map of modern day Winnipeg. We added motion graphics and an animation layer that details the sequence of events, providing visitors with a narrative understanding of the strike that was a springboard for labor reform in Canada.
