Coming up next week at SFU Vancouver:
Friday, July 3: Creative Mornings – Leah Nelson and Jay Grandin
Time: 8:30am Place: Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings St. Cost: Free with registration. Tickets dependent on waitlist.
Jay Grandin and Leah Nelson run Giant Ant, a creative studio in Vancouver. Specializing in animation and documentary, Giant Ant has slowly worked its way to being one of the top studios in Canada, with clients like TOMS Shoes, Target, and Facebook—and recognition from the likes of the Clios and ADC awards. They’re also married. And have newborn twins. If there is one thing these business, life and parenting partners know… it’s how to collaborate.
July 9 - 18: Indian Summer Festival
Time: 5pm and onward Place: Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings St. Cost: Ticket prices vary depending on event.
Indian Summer Festival brings the world to Vancouver through a series of provocative, multi-arts events featuring great international visionaries and minds. Expect provocative talks by literary stars and social entrepreneurs, a genre-bending jazz concert with a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, one of India’s most renowned musical maestros, a look at when 30s era Bombay met American jazz, and a special series of free public art projects.
June 3 – August 1: Through A Window: Visual Art And SFU 1965-2015
Time: 12am Place: Audain Gallery, SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings St. Cost: Free. No registration required.
Through a Window looks at visual art production at SFU since 1965. Literally considering the window at each of SFU’s campuses as a social, spatial and material symbol, the exhibition takes up Henri Lefebvre’s Rhythmanalysis (1992), particularly the chapter “Seen from the Window,” as a framework for reflecting on the rhythms of the past fifty years. The polyrhythms within aesthetics, theory, pedagogy, technology and politics inform the movement of artists’ through the classroom, the studio, the gallery and the city – locally and internationally, in linear and cyclical, continuous and punctuated circuits.
February 5 – July 23: Woodward's Community Singers 2015 Workshops
Time: 6pm, every Thursday evening Place: 131 West Hastings St. at PHS Woodward's, 10th floor, entrance is two doors east; Goldcorp Centre for the Arts entrance at 149 West Hastings St. Cost: Free. No experience or auditions required, no cost, no obligation, drop-ins welcomed.
This is a free, drop-in, non-auditioned community choir. All voices are invited to join us in song. Together we sing music from gospel, folk, popular, and contemporary traditions. It's informal, fun, playful and profound. We're a friendly gang of welcoming people who live or work in the area, go to school at SFU or come from around the city to gather here and enjoy the community we build through music. There are usually 25 to 35 singers each week and always a handful of new singers joining us for the first time. Participants are also welcome to come, drink a cup of tea and just listen.
None scheduled at this time.
