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!
Organized under many names over many years, we now know them as the Pride Collective, a resource group fuelled by the very same motivation of their founders: to create and maintain a space for lasting community at UBC.
Announced in a statement today, the Vancouver Pride Society (VPS) has revoked the university’s presence at the annual parade due to UBC’s “decision to provide a platform for transphobic hate speech.”
On February 10, 1977, The Ubyssey published a letter by Natasha Meissner. 42 years later, we spoke to Meissner on her motivations behind the letter and how she feels now
While the crux of Queer Lives on Display: In the Archives of The Institute of Sexual Science in Berlin was on Hirschfeld and his life, the central thesis of Bauer’s talk was on “what it means to archives the lives of people who don’t fit with in norms.”
UBC will be live streaming all of the graduation ceremonies, so you can watch from the comfort of your own home or office. You can also re-watch the streams for the time being and relive all the memories of people dabbing as they graduate.
Just in time for Congress of the Humanities and the Social Sciences Conference, UBC Theatre is debuting their production of famed Canadian playwright Michel Tremblay’s hotly-debated play Hosanna.
I am very similar to Garfield in many ways. First: I too hate Mondays. Second, I am voiced by Bill Murray. Third and most importantly, I love love lasagne.
Over the course of its history, UBC has had various pep bands, but the Thunderbird Marching Band didn’t start until 2012. The club was founded to create something similar to the American university experience.
The Board of Governors is a very fancy institution that reports to the provincial government, but who wants to live in an institution?
VP Finance seems like a very fancy position, but maybe that's just because here at From the Cult we don’t understand how money works.
The VP External is arguable “the fanciest” of the Vice President positions, if you consider talking to the federal government fancy (we do).
