Now that reading break is done, there is only one thing to look forward to: Block Party. Well the gods must be smiling down upon us because the announced lineup seems like it will be a lit time.
One morning when I was in Grade Five I woke up with a giant pimple on my left cheek.
On February 6, the museum will host Decolonizing Voices: A Celebration of Canadian Black HERstory, an event featuring a spoken word performance by Adelene da Soul Poet and a poetry reading and book signing with Chantal Gibson.
Playing with Fire was incredibly playful, especially thinking about how precious ceramics are. In context with the European Ceramics Gallery, Playing with Fire was a great reminder of what ceramic art can be and how people in the past found meaning in the art that we may now have lost.
Saturday will see the UBC Thunderbirds volleyball teams take on rivals Trinity Western in the third annual Pride Night.
Back for its second year and bigger than ever, Smash Comedy Festival is here to make space in the comedy world for those who are often sidelined. The festival looks to promote women, Trans and femme comedians in an industry often dominated by cis white men.
Taking place on November 20, TDOR seeks to honour the lives of Transgender people who have died and open a wider conversation on the impacts of transphobia.
Death is a heavy topic that all of us would rather not think about. So how do we celebrate a day dedicated to remembering violence and death in our community? For many, Trans Day of Remembrance is solemn day. A day to think on the friends and family they have lost, the ways the system has let us down.
Feeling like you have to give your legs a bit of a stretch?
The UBC archivists advised me that the beans of the western catalpa are “not edible” and also “not beans.” “Not edible as in will kill me?” I said. “Well they’re not poisonous but you shouldn’t-” and I didn't catch what they said as I had heard all that I needed and was gleefully thinking of how to prepare something with these long beans.
On September 30, UBC will honour Orange Shirt Day. The day commemorates victims and survivors of the Indian Residential School System and looks to raise awareness on topics surrounding the Schools.
ARTIVISM is back for it's second year — and it's set to be bigger than ever. The multi venue festival held across campus kicks off Friday September 26 and runs until October 4.
The poster features smiling students on a run, shows a map of Vancouver and UBC and ends with the strangely worded tagline: 'A jaunt through Musqueam Territory.' This poster, and the festival, misrepresents UBC History and that infuriates me.
On Friday, September 6, UBC hosted UBC Pride which featured resource booths, activities and performances. Before the event took place, many UBC community members expressed cynicism, considering the university’s recent track record with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. We sent a few writers to attend the events and share their thoughts.
Bolsen, Murda Beatz and What So Not will be preforming as well. Other performers playing at the event will be MGH!
