Hycroft Gallery Opening – March 2020

March 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6H 1V1 Canada

Members are cordially invited to the opening reception for Elizabeth Ross, a local photographer and image-maker who looks to communicate with the inherent and essential living presence of things. ‘Tree Poems’ is an ongoing series depicting the energetic mystery evoked by the powerful poetry of trees that allows dreaming. Intrigued and mystified by the transformative power of dance, Elizabeth collaborated with young artists and the idea of a visual narrative in the language of dance amplified into ‘Dream Dancing.’

CALLING ALL ARTISTS! If you are a member who is an artist, the Visual Arts Committee invites you to apply to exhibit in the Hycroft Gallery. The application is online on the UWCV web site under Events>Visual Arts at Hycroft or emails visarts@uwcvancouver.ca for more information

The UWCV Education Committee would like to invite you to attend the first Education Forum, "Violence in Schools," a discussion to be held by Dr. Elizabeth Saewyc. 

Dr. Saewyc's research focuses on how the stigma and trauma influence the health of marginalized young people, and what protective factors and interventions can foster resilience.

This Education Forum – the first of what is hoped will be an annual event – looks at the concerns around violence in schools and both the speaker and the panel of experts will provide valuable insights into this issue.

There will be ample opportunity for participants to get responses to their questions, and it is hoped that, at the end of the meeting, they might sign a letter of concern to be sent to the Ministry.

TICKETS
UWCV Members $25+TAX
Non-members $30+TAX

Light refreshments will be served. 

Please register by the office by Friday, February 28th, 2020.
