All Day LIFT Exhibition Series: Unobstructed Beauty (Multi-Day Event)

This year, the LIFT series features three female painters from the Waterloo Region: Lauren Judge, Marion R. Anderson, and Anne Filiatrault. Each artist shares a narrative that invites viewers to reflect on how we perceive and experience our surrounding environment.

The LIFT microgalleries are located on floors 4-6 of the Waterloo campus Library daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • All Day Zaagi’idwin: Silent, Unquestionable Act of Love, a multimedia installation by artist Leanna Marshall (Multi-Day Event)

    Leanna Marshall is a member of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug. Her art practice focuses on the art of ancestral storytelling – creating an intersection where viewers can meet to understand the essence of relationships, connection/disconnection and loss. Through the making and documentation of seven jingle dresses, Marshall explores the stories that have shaped her perception of the complexities of her family history in the context of Canadian history. The social inequities, resistance and sadness told in these narratives serves as a springboard to examine the act of healing, compassion and forgiveness.

  • 11:00 AM - 2:20 PM What is Your Impact? Developing an Impact Statement to Guide Your Career Planning

    March 13 from 11 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. in the Science Building, N1058, and in SC Johnson 210 in Brantford (via videoconference)

    For anyone who does not, in fact, possess a crystal ball that allows them to see into their future career. Instead of reacting to annual and seasonal changes in the job market in your field, you can adopt a creative standpoint that begins with your particular talents and values. This workshop takes graduate students through a series of exercises that examine your unique abilities and your values. Using these insights, you develop a career impact statement that articulates your signature contribution to any work environment. This impact statement will help both you gauge what kind of job is ideal for you and the steps you need to take to get that work. Using impact to guide your vision for your career serves as a reminder that your work, your career, is bigger and more important than any one job. Each of these tools provide guidance and perspective in strategizing not only your job search, but your graduate education generally. Knowing where your grad program fits into your overall desire to make an impact in your career helps you make choices that resonate with the life you want to have and the scholar you want to be.

    1:00 PM - 3:00 PM Simultaneous Chess Exhibition by Natalia Khoudgarian

    Interested in being one of 30 people playing a chess master at the same time? Or just watching? On Tuesday, March 13, Wilfrid Laurier University’s Centre for Women in Science (WinS) is hosting a simultaneous chess exhibition by Natalia Khoudgarian, who holds the Woman International Master title of the World Chess Federation.

    WinS is hosting the event “to celebrate successful women,” said Shohini Ghose, director of the centre and an award-winning physics professor. “Chess has been traditionally viewed as a test of intellectual ability, so celebrating a woman chess master is a way to celebrate the fact that women can excel in all fields including intellectual excellence.”

    Khoudgarian has represented Canada twice each at the Women's World Chess Championship and the Women’s Chess Olympiads and is a four-time winner of the Canadian Women's Championship. She will be available for informal chats after the simultaneous games.

    Anyone of any age or ability level can be one of the 30 to play against Khoudgarian. To register as a player, email Hasan Shodiev at before March 8. Spaces are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis and there is no fee.
