The WPA began as an informal alumni society for the Department of Philosophy at the University of Windsor. Shortly after the inception of the WPA it became a loose knit association of alumni from the department of philosophy, philosophers located in Windsor, and generally friends of philosophy within the region. This more general association was intended to be an open group that supports the development of a critical community of the philosophically minded within the region. The WPA supported both student and independent scholarship and encourages philosophers to bring their research beyond the bounds of the university and into the public sphere.
In May of 2013, the WPA transformed again into the WP(A)A, a registered Non-Profit Corporation and Charitable Organization in Ontario. The notion behind this latest transformation is to establish a non-profit artist organization (akin to Artcite, Windsor) dedicated to supporting independent philosophical scholarship and philosophers intervention events within the greater Windsor region.

Windsor, Ward 4 Candidate Debate, September 21st 2014 from 6pm until 8pm

With the municipal election fast approaching (Monday October 27th, 2014) it is important that the residents of Ward 4 be given the opportunity to meet and assess their potential representatives and acquaint themselves with the positions of these candidates.  Debate along with an informed citizenry is the lifeblood of democracy.  This debate will offer an opportunity to find out how these candidates intend to represent you!  
The WPAA is happy to act as co-host for this event: September 21st 2014 from 6pm until 8pm @ The Walkerville Brewery.
