Category Title Date Time
Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-28 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Lecture/Seminar Sifting through the Anthropocene: science and discourse in a human made epoch 2017-03-28 15:30:00
Description

Human activity is leaving such a pervasive and persistent signature on the Earth—from the combustion of fossil fuels to the dropping of nuclear weapons to even the global spread of the domestic chicken—that we may have caused the planet to enter a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene. These traces of human activity will last for millions of years.
 
The Anthropocene concept has rapidly leapt the bounds of earth-systems science and emerged as a new paradigm for understanding our place in the world by social scientists, humanities scholars, politicians, activists, journalists, educators and artists.
 
In this talk, geologist James Syvitski will explore the significance of the Anthropocene and its complex dynamic structures, emergent phenomena and unintended consequences; how these come at us at a great many different scales while weaving together biophysical constraints and social, economic and political conditions. The talk will also investigate how we can align global governance with stewardship, ultimately deciding our future as a civilisation.
 
 
Professor James (Jai) Syvitski holds faculty appointments in Geological Sciences, Applied Mathematics, Atmosphere & Ocean Sciences, Hydrological Sciences, and Geophysics at the University of Colorado.

Lecture/Seminar Indigenous Water Initiatives: Achievements and Capacity Gaps 2017-03-28 12:00:00
Description

**SPACE IS LIMITED** Register now!

A priority winning condition for watershed governance in British Columbia is co-governance, which involves meaningful partnerships and shared decision-making between Indigenous and non-Indigenous decision-makers and communities. Before co-governance arrangements can be initiated, First Nations must have the internal means to develop and articulate their communities’ water priorities and values. In many regions in B.C., First Nations are leading innovative watershed governance approaches. Despite this leadership, there are also capacity gaps that can constrain progress.

In this webinar, Kate Cave (Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources) and Genevieve Layton-Cartier (First Nations Fisheries Council) will share results from a 2016 systematic research review of Indigenous-led freshwater planning initiatives and co-governance arrangements in B.C. This research identified capacity gaps and will contribute to shaping the future of freshwater planning and a new watershed governance regime in the province. The webinar will also feature perspectives from Shannon Squire (P'egp'ig'lha Council/T'it'q'et First Nation) and Ashley Doyle (Kwantlen First Nation), who will share their journeys to implement or develop water initiatives in their respective nations.

Film MR. GAGA: A True Story of Love and Dance 2017-03-28 19:00:00
Description

MR. GAGA: A True Story of Love and Dance

Director: Tomer Heymann; Israel, 2015, 100 min; English & Hebrew with subtitles; PG

WINNER! DOCUMENTARY AUDIENCE AWARD –SXSW Festival

Leading Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin is profiled in possibly the most exciting documentary for fans of edgier modern dance since “Pina.” With a compelling lead character and plenty of striking performance footage from his tenure to date as director of Batsheva Dance Group, Tomer Heymann delivers a feature that has won a handful of fest prizes.

Still fit, limber and driven as ever in his mid-60s, Naharin began professional training as late as age 22. He accepted an offer in 1990 to take over Tel Aviv’s Batsheva Company. He chucked its staple fare for some adventuresome new works of his own. Their electric impact, incorporating jagged, unpredictable movement, multimedia factors, sociopolitical themes and other challenging elements, quickly attracted new patrons — and critical admiration that greatly increased the institution’s international stature.

Between riveting excerpts from individual dances, Naharin is shown rehearsing his company and creating new pieces. –Variety

Mark this “Required Viewing” for dance fans who know the term Gaga goes far beyond the lady in the meat dress. Blending a stunning collection of archival footage, interviews with his uncompromising subject, and awe-inspiring dance excerpts, Heymann crafts a definitive portrait of a brilliant innovator who’s influenced dance across the planet. Georgia Straight

“AN EXHILARING ODE TO CULTURAL EXPRESSION.” –POV

“A FIRST-RATE DOCUMENTARY.” –The Age
