Lecture/Seminar HIWEST: Forum & Panel Discussion 2016-09-30 18:30:00
Description

HIWEST 

(pronounced "hee-west")

Forum & Panel Discussion

Creation, Honouring & Preservation of Pacific Northwest Indigenous Poles / Monumental Wood Carving

Creation, Honouring & Preservation of Pacific Northwest Indigenous Poles / Monumental Wood Carving is this year’s theme for the HIWEST (pronounced "hee-west"), First Nations Artist Forum on Friday, September 30th, 2016 from 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at the University of Victoria Legacy Gallery Downtown, 630 Yates Street.

Poles and other monumental wood carving have been commissioned and installed throughout our region in recent decades, eliciting huge public interest and appetite to learn more about the traditions, practices and meanings. Further, the stewards of the poles struggle to best and most respectfully commission, preserve and honour these monuments that are rife with narrative and cultural significance.  Join us for an event that will help all of us delve deeper into the understanding, honouring, and caring for the poles/monumental wood carving that are so rich with cultural significance.

Join us for a panel discussion, moderated by Dr. Andrea Walsh, Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology at the University of Victoria.

The artist panel will include Doug LaFortune, Lou-ann Neel, Rande Cook and Hjalmer Wenstob.

Featuring a brief presentation on the preservation of poles and monumental carvings by Heidi Swierenga, Senior Conservator at the Museum of Anthropology, University of British Columbia.

 

Created in partnership with the University of Victoria Legacy Art Galleries & the City of Victoria

Music FACULTY CONCERT SERIES: South Indian Classical Music 2016-09-30 20:00:00
Description

Patrick Boyle, trumpet
Curtis Andrews, mridangam
Vidyasagar Vankayala, voice


Patrick Boyle and Curtis Andrews present an evening of traditional South Indian (Carnatic) music and original compositions.

Associate Professor of UVic Jazz Studies, Dr. Patrick Boyle embodies the jazz spirit by synthesizing a range of influences into a compelling original voice. He has been aptly referred to as a “trumpet personality” and “one of Canada’s top trumpet players and jazz musicians in general” by CBC Radio. Curtis Andrews is a Canadian-based percussionist/composer/teacher who creates music that is informed by his many years of experience with West African, South Indian and jazz traditions yet transcends most categories. He is currently a PhD student in Ethnomusicology at the University of British Columbia. Vidyasagar Vankayala hails from a family of musicians in Andhra Pradesh (South India). Steeped in Carnatic music since age 6, Vidyasagar has concertized across North America and India and is a sought-after teacher in Vancouver with over 20 students and collaborators working with him on Carnatic Music.

Tune in here for the live broadcast.

Description

Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. He is now selling out clubs across the nation and has appeared on over 100 episodes of “Chelsea Lately.” His infectious, explosive energy on stage, insightful jokes, and family‐inspired humor cross all boundaries. Jo, who was raised in Tacoma, WA, credits his mother for his comedic and acting talents. She encouraged him to participate in school talent shows and to hold im- promptu performances for his family and friends. This loving support led to performances at a Las Vegas coffee house, and inspired a move to Los Angeles. In 2005, Jo had the “opportunity of a lifetime” with a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He became one of a select few ever to receive a standing ovation.

Jo Koy pulls inspiration from his family and specifically his son. He has had two Comedy Central specials “Don’t Make Him Angry” and “Lights Out.” Jo has appeared on VH1, World's Funniest Fails, The Joy Behar Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly and Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza. Jo is a firm believer in service and giving back to the community and is currently working with The Lupus Foundation to bring awareness to this cause. Jo currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

Film HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE 2016-09-30 15:00:00
Description

Back by popular demand!

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE

Director: Taika Waititi; New Zealand, 2016, 101 minutes; PG

“A MUST-SEE FILM!” –Toronto Star

A sullen boy bouncing around foster care. A curmudgeonly widower with no interest in children. Those may sound like the ingredients for a saccharine drama, but in writer-director Taika Waititi’s hands, they’re elements to concoct a subversive, wildly entertaining comedy about the power of misfits and the strength of good humour. It seems like the story might devolve into sentimentality as Ricky (Julian Dennison) struggles to survive in the New Zealand bush with his caretaker Hec (Sam Neill, giving a career-best perforfmance). Instead, Waititi (who’s also responsible for the best comedy of 2015, What We Do in the Shadows) executes a series of deft U-turns, twisting the tale into 101 minutes of pure comic joy. –The Globe and Mail

 “WARMLY FUNNY AND DEEPLY DELIGHTFUL!” --Screen International

“DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO SEE IT!” –Arizona Republic

"Watching this lovely little lark from New Zealand, you may feel like ahappy camper on a twisty trail blazed by a cockeyed comic prodigy." --Wall Street Journal

Lecture/Seminar Disturbance and Recovery of Canada's Forests: Monitoring with satellite data 2016-09-30 14:45:00
Description

Mike Wulder
Senior Research Scientist, Canadian Forest Service

Canada has recreated the recent history of its forest disturbance and related recovery using Landsat data; a history that would otherwise not be possible to recreate in a manner that is spatially explicit and at a spatial resolution of relevance for forest management, habitat and ecosystem service assessments.  National governments need to produce information products with confidence to aid in national reporting, to inform policy, and to offer scientific insights.  These valuable datasets and information outcomes allowed for map production and trend analysis of land dynamics, but were of a spatial resolution that was suboptimal for supporting management, reporting, and policy development.  With the 2008 opening of the U.S. Geological Survey Landsat archive, Canada got the best of both worlds: national data coverage (~1 billion hectares) at a spatial resolution of 30 m over a 3 decade period.  Implementing the Composite2Change (C2C) approach, outputs include annual gap-free image composite products representing 1984 to 2012 which are now being used to characterize change, land cover, and forest structure.  The time series aspect has enabled refined production of land cover and forest structure based upon expectations of transitions (land cover) and successional processes.
