Other JDC Westination 2014-07-29 All Day
Description

JDC West is coming to UVic in 2015, and as charity is very important to the organization, the Organizing Committee is excited to announce “JDC Westination,” a fundraising initiative created to help raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria.

OC members are using Facebook, encouraging their friends to "JDC Westinate" (nominate) them to complete challenges. Once photo/video evidence is posted as proof that a challenge has been completed the 'challenger' then makes a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

What type of nominations?  Random acts of kindness, volunteer hours, helping out in the community, or doing something silly/funny/crazy that will put a smile on people’s faces. Check out the OC member's Facebook accounts to learn more about what they are doing.

Film "The Lunchbox" 2014-07-29 19:00:00
Description

THE LUNCHBOX

Director: Ritesh Batra  

India, 2013, 104 min; Hindi & English with subtitles

Some romances are written in the stars. Others, it would seem, can be chalked up to a misread street map. When a lunchbox prepared by Ila (Nimrat Kaur) for her emotionally distant husband is mistakenly delivered to Saajan (the wonderful Irrfan Khan, Life of Pi), the under-appreciated Mumbai housewife and lonely accountant strike up an intimate correspondence. The tinges of disappointment and regret that punctuate these missives reflect the enticing soulfulness of Ritesh Batra’s debut. In turn, there’s exhilaration to be had watching these characters realize that their futures are unwritten. But will they put down their pens and overcome the obstacles keeping them from one another? –Vancouver International Film Festival

“This warm and affectionate human comedy from India is charming in a delicate and unforced way.” –Los Angeles Times

 “A wistful, elegant love story.”Screen

Exhibit Margaret Peterson: A Search In Rhythm 2014-07-29 All Day
Description

A Search In Rhythm features the artworks and personal papers of the groundbreaking mid-20th century abstract painter, Margaret Peterson (1903-1997). Peterson had a big vision: to search for the spiritual realm, in rhythm with the artistic aims of Indigenous peoples across the world. Peterson's main medium was egg tempera on plywood panels—striking in size, colour, and form. By showcasing Peterson's possessions, photographs, and writing about her work alongside the works themselves, her vision and search is more fully realized. This is the first in an upcoming series of exhibitions presenting the University of Victoria's Artist Archives and Legacy Art Galleries joint holdings which demonstrates the rich research potential of this recently acquired material.
