Origin Stories

First Nations Prints and Carvings

Guest curated by Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) with Gillian Booth and Katie Hughes.

As Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, the Legacy Art Galleries respectfully acknowledges a much longer history by presenting First Nations narratives that move beyond limited settler versions of history. Through prints and carvings chosen by guest curator, Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) from the Fort Nelson First Nation, the exhibition explores centuries-old stories that continue to live in the people, communities, nations and lands of this place.

Film THEIR FINEST 2017-05-31 19:00:00
Description

THEIR FINEST

Director: Lone Scherfig; UK, 2016, 117 min; 14A

Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy.

“HUGE FUN!” –The Arts Desk

Set in London in 1940, during the height of the Blitz, this is a film about the making of a film that needs to serve as a salve for the besieged British populace, boosting morale and helping, in its own way, to win the War.

It features a plucky, proto-feminist heroine (Gemma Arterton), a jaded love interest (Sam Claflin), a raft of distinguished English character actors, and an adorable dog. it is a relentlessly charming romantic comedy featuring Bill Nighy — a master scene-stealer pulling off yet another brazen heist. –Variety

“HILARIOUS AND CHARMING. BILL NIGHY SHOULD BE IN EVERY MOVIE!” –JoBlo’s Movie Emporium

This charming, rousing WWII romance is a film that openly stumps for two causes: the value of women in the workplace, and the power of cinema to tell stories that people need to hear. –The Playlist

Lecture/Seminar Strong Sentences and Self Editing 2017-05-31 14:00:00
Description

Choose Your Own Self-Editing Adventure: Common Errors and How to Avoid Them!

Less is more. This class will teach you how to write more concisely and avoid redundancy and wordiness, so that you can finish within your word limit and write with impact and purpose. We will also explore the concepts of sentence “weight,” plain language principles, and good sentence construction. Learn the differences between the four sentence types, and build a varied piece of writing that shows connections between ideas in the best way possible.

In this workshop, you’ll also consider common errors made by both native and non-native English speakers, and begin to develop a self-editing checklist that you can use to improve your own writing. Bring a piece of your unpolished writing with you and get feedback on items to add to your list.
