In the context of this eco-art, Tomkinson’s concern lies with noise pollution in Vancouver and protecting the silent spaces we are still fortunate to have.
Garden Jams, a collaboration event between Blank Vinyl Project and Roots on the Roof, was a better-than-usual night for students to wax poetics while gazing at the sunset as some quiet acoustic tunes rang out in the summer breeze.
When you attend Pride, it doesn’t matter whether you’re apart of the LGBTQIA2S+ community or in solidarity as an ally — it is all about acceptance and being yourself. That is, full heartedly, the impression that I got from Pride 2018 at UBC, which made me oh-so-happy.

Playland Nights is a 19+ event where they kick out all the kids who puke after a go on the Break Dance ride and sub in intoxicated adults who also have a tendency to puke on rides that induce motion sickness.
I judged the servings at the Fifth Annual UBC Chef Challenge based on my preferences, their creativity in flavour, texture, presentation and most importantly, how the meal and drink as a whole tasted and complimented each other.
