Public Reception for A Child's View From Gaza - Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, 7:00 p.m. (details below)

Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME), Victoria Chapter, is delighted to announce the presentation in Victoria of a fascinating and heart-wrenchingly beautiful collection of drawings by children and youth from Gaza. The exhibition, A Child's View from Gaza, features 20 drawings by children in Gaza from 5 to 14 years of age, created during the course of art therapy. The exhibition reflects the children's perceptions of the Israeli offensive against Gaza, which took place from December 27, 2008 to January 17, 2009. Each drawing is unique in its perspective and details.

Public Reception:
CJPME cordially invites you to attend a public reception and viewing of A Child's View From Gaza exhibit, at the A. Wilfrid Johns Gallery, Faculty of Education, MacLaurin Building-A Wing, University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. 

There will be a presentation by Dr. Robert Dalton, Art Education Professor, at the University of Victoria. Dr. Dalton's Ph.D. dissertation was focused on the theme of children's war drawings, and since then he has studied collections of drawings from Iraq, Afghanistan and other regions of the world, where the lives of children and youth have been affected by conflict. As well, he has studied art collections where peace, a much more hopeful and uplifting topic, was the theme.

Refreshments will be served. Live Arabic music will be performed. Short film clips (The Future for Gaza's Children-An Interview with Dr. Eyad al-Sarraj, Psychiatrist; Samouni Street; and Gaza: Did You Know?) will be shown.  Guests will be invited to participate in an art activity. A Gazan/Palestinian cultural display will be on hand.

CJPME gratefully acknowledges the A. Wilfrid Johns Gallery for providing this venue.

Other End of Term Stuff Swap 2012-11-23 14:00:00

On friday Nov. 23 from 2-5 in the Michele Pujol Room in the Sub my geography group with support from SOGS is planning a Stuff Swap. A stuff swap event where people can bring old items to leave, sell or swap with some one else. Any leftover items will be donated. This way people can get rid of some clutter. Hopefully someone else will use it rather than buying new or throwing out a perfectly functional product. 

*Note if someone tries to leave something that is beyond donating we will not take it. We will use our discretion towards the quality of the product. Books, movies, clothes, electronics, and even furniture are all acceptable. What ever you don't want, we do.

Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE: Good Person of Setzuan @8pm 2012-11-23 20:00:00

Good Person of Setzuan
by Bertolt Brecht

Three gods arrive in a large manufacturing-based city in search of one good person. A young prostitute, Shen Teh, is granted a new life and the ownership of her own tobacco shop for an act of kindness to the gods. She strives to be a ”good person” in a world based on theft, deceit and corruption, where everyone takes advantage of her generosity. To avoid financial ruin, she invents Shui Ta –  a shrewd, no-nonsense male cousin to protect her business interests. Set in modern-day, industrial China, Brecht’s famous play maintains its relevance as a parable on how to be a good person in an imperfect, money-centric, class-divided society.

Film "Premium RUSH" 2012-11-23 15:00:00


Director: David Koepp   USA, 2012, 91 min; 14A

Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez, Jamie Chung

Pushing pedal to the mettle and its breezily thin, goofy story to the breaking point, Premium Rush is buoyant dumb-fun, a ticking-clock thriller about a New York bicycle messenger who has to get from here to there without being taken out. Stuffed with zingers and zippy stunts, it comes with pretty young things of all hues and hair types — few prettier than its lead, Joseph Gordon-Levitt — and start-to-finish clever special effects, none more clever or special than Michael Shannon. Mr. Shannon, having grabbed the Crazy Man baton from Christopher Walken, enters, teeth gnashing, eyes bulging, to play a bad, bad New York detective. –The New York Times
