Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated in collaboration by Caroline Riedel, Justine Auben Drummond & Dr. Andrea Walsh

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street | Small Gallery

This exhibition honours Coast Salish artists Chris Paul, Maynard Johnny Jr., and knitters May Sam and the Olsen family (Adam, Joni, and their mother Sylvia) who were part of the University of Victoria's Artist in Residence Program through the Department of Anthropology between 2011 and 2013. During their 3 month residency they taught students about their own artistic practices as well as aspects of Coast Salish history and contemporary culture. The exhibit illustrates the teaching methodology and experience of students and artists in collaboration along with examples of the artists' work.

Lecture/Seminar One Wave Festival 2014 2014-09-19 13:00:00
Description

Pacific Peoples’ Partnership (PPP) is hosting the 7th annual One Wave Festival on Friday September 19th and Saturday September 20th.  One Wave is PPP’s inspired action to celebrate and honor connections to the Pacific while building identity and community. The purpose of One Wave is to engage individuals to create one movement amongst all peoples to address issues including: cultural integrity, language loss, climate change, ocean pollution, food security, Indigenous identity, racism, and long-term effects of colonialism.

These issues will be addressed at the free-admission Changemakers’ Summit on Friday September 19th co-hosted by the Centre for Asia Pacific Initiatives, and held at the University of Victoria Cadboro Commons from 1:00-3:30 PM. A panel presentation entitled, “Puppets, Performers, & Social Change” featuring changemakers such as Sutrisno Hartana, Wendy Passmore, and Jeremy Bally, will explore the role of the arts in acts of social transformation.

After the presentation, attendees will break out in groups led by various non-government officials (NGOs) including World Fisheries Trust, Cascadian Crusaders, and Raincoast Conservation Foundation, to discuss ways of becoming active in creating social change. The Puppets for Peace will also play a main role in this event with a puppet-making and performance workshop.

 

More free-admission workshops and performances will take place on Saturday September 20th in the Pacific Arts and Culture Showcase from 12:00-6:00 PM in Centennial Square. The day’s events will feature live music, spoken word, and dance performances from the North and South Pacific. There will be face painting, chalk art, storytelling, and various other interactive arts performances. Costumed performers (Cascadian Crusaders) and walking stilt puppets (Puppets for Peace) will also be highlights at the event. Local NGOs will be present in the vendor village to promote their respective missions.  Kids and families are welcome.

For more information about this event, please contact PPP’s Media Relations representative Kat Zimmer at 250-381-4131. Currently, One Wave is seeking more volunteers, vendors, and artists to participate in this multi-cultural event. If you are interested, please email info@pacificpeoplespartnership.org.

Film Film Week: THE AMAZING CATFISH; by Claudia Saint-Luce (Mexico, 2013 - 89 mins) 2014-09-19 19:00:00
Description

LOS INSÓLITOS PECES GATO [The Amazing Catfish]; by Claudia Saint-Luce (Mexico, 2013 - 89 mins)

Claudia, a lonely young woman, ends up in hospital with a severe case of appendicitis.  There, she meets Marta, the woman resting in the bed next to hers.  Marta, who lives with her four children, gains Claudia's trust.  When Marta gets out of the hospital, she suggests that Claudia go home with them.  Getting to know this family makes Claudia feel at ease, and for the first time she experiences a sense of belonging in this peculiar little tribe.  As Marta's health weakens, the bond Claudia has with each member of the family grows stronger.  An endearing family comedy, The Amazing Catfish was recognized as the best Latin American feature at the 2014 Mar del Plata International Film Festival and was awarded the Fipresci Prize in the Discovery Program for emerging directors at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

The 5th Latin American and Spanish Film Week is organized by the Hispanic Film Society of Victoria and sponsored by the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies, the Department of Women's Studies, the Division of Continuing Studies, the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Office of Community Relations and the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost at the University of Victoria, as well as by CRD Arts Development Service and the Consulate General of Mexico in Vancouver.

We are grateful for the support of the Passion for Tango Society, the CFUV radio program Postales Musicales de Latinoamérica (101.9 FM), and community member Randall Recinos-Drago.

English subtitles.  Showtimes are 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. at Cinecenta in the Student Union Building.  Cost:  $4.75-$7.75 (regular admission fees).  For full details, visit www.cinecenta.com/.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-09-19 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated by lessLIE

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

In this exhibition the theme of perpetuation unifies the work of five contemporary Coast Salish artists who live and work in this region. The word perpetuation is meant to suggest a continuum of ideas and processes, which come from distinctive traditions that have existed over millennia. Perpetuation also infers some of the challenges that contemporary Coast Salish artists continue to face in the contexts of colonialism and assimilation as well as the dominance of other Indigenous traditions, which were often favoured by the art world, in both commercial and educational contexts. It is only in the last three decades that Coast Salish art has become more readily recognized by a wider audience as distinct from other Northwest Coast traditions.

This exhibition presents a wide range of art forms and ideas, and visitors will gain a better understanding of the cultural and stylistic elements that unify and inspire these contemporary artists in their own artistic practices. Artists featured are Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, John Marston, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.

Lecture/Seminar The Natural City 2014-09-19 14:45:00
Description

The Natural City

Vic Derman
Councillor, District of Saanich

Our “Auto-centric” cities and towns have produced a myriad of unsustainable outcomes, including loss of open space, environmental degradation, and choking congestion. Increasingly, they have become unattractive, inhospitable, and a blight on the planet that hosts us. It’s way PAST TIME to produce communities designed for people, harmonious with local environments, and able to address the challenges of a very different twenty-first century world.
The Natural City presents a visionary, comprehensive, and thought provoking approach to our urban future. It’s a transformative future critical for today’s residents and those who come after us.
