10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)

Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.

Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Delton Glebe Lunch and Learn Series
Horticultural Therapy: Heidi Torreiter An interactive introduction to horticultural therapy. Participants will be reminded through their senses, of the power that plants hold to effect how we feel, be inspired by the supporting research and leave with easy ways of incorporating plant therapy into their practice.

    Join the International Migration Research Centre (IMRC) for a lecture and conversation with Ben Rowswell. Dr. Alison Mountz, Director of the IMRC and Canada Research Chair in Global Migration, will moderate the conversation.

    Ben Rowswell, the CIC President and Research Director, will draw on his observations of populism in Venezuela, the United Kingdom and the United States to argue that it represents a rival form of politics to democracy. He will demonstrate how misleading and hostile perceptions of the international system are a mainstay of populist politics, and will issue a call to all Canadians to engage in informed and respectful debate about international relations as a means to uphold our democratic traditions.

    CIC Waterloo Region would like to thank the Dr. Robert Gordon, Vice-President Academic and Provost at Wilfrid Laurier University, Dr. Alison Mountz of the International Migration Research Center at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, Laurier International, the national office of the CIC, and the executive members of the Waterloo branch for making this event possible.

    Registration is available now.
