“Our real hope is that it will be a space that supports all the various needs of the arts students faculty, so were imagining that it will support learning, social interaction, collaboration, as well as space for innovation.”
Surprised that not one of his students’ plays were selected for the Fringe Festival, Wade half-jokingly brought forward the idea for them to pool their money together and put on their own.
Couscous Royale was the last meal my father made me before leaving Montreal and it was one last reminder that when I moved out, j’allais me débrouiller — I was gonna figure it out.
Only during a hectic summer of French classes was I able to discover that eating French food makes you better at French stuff… or at least it gives you an incentive to study, and maybe even reduce the use of Google translate.
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.
By giving creative freedom to artists who come from different backgrounds and tell different stories, the festival plays an important role in social movements. This year, the festival is focusing on female producers and artists as well as Indigenous representation with Musqueam artist Debra Sparrow, a self-taught designer and weaver.
Holy shit, it's August. That means that there is a little over a month left to cram in a book so to counteract all of the beer and trash on Netflix you consumed this summer. Don't worry - the editors at the Ubyssey have complied a list of last-minute summer reads that will make you laugh, cry, and most importantly, seem cultured.
This scone maybe good for the soul, but not for heart health. Struggling to push aside a few nagging facts from my summer nutrition course, I dive into yet another scone, only justified by the fact that I’m writing a review about it.
The artists were given two hours to complete their murals. If that wasn’t cool enough to watch, there was also a live model that anyone could draw — paper and pencils were handed out on request.
The original Pit in the SUB basement was by all accounts a hive of scum and villainy. Old Ubyssey pictures make it look like one of the dive-iest of dive bars. While a lot of my friends like the new, sleeker Pit, I can’t shake this weird nostalgia I have for a bar I’ve never been to.

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.
Asian-Canadians and diasporic-Asian writing worldwide have come a long way since the Gold Rush stories Chong grew up with. He has since made peace with those narratives, stating that the older generation of Asian-Canadian writers helped pave the way for younger Asian-Canadians to write freely.
The area surrounding Powell Street used to host a thriving Japanese-Canadian community. Now, every year, the Powell Street Festival Society hosts an event to cultivate Japanese-Canadian art and culture in the area.
If you are as bad as I am at returning at library books on time and spend your paycheques paying off library fees, you’ll probably appreciate the Free Little Library — even if it does make you feel like a giant.
“This kind of symposium is essentially a place where we want to carve out this space that doesn’t quite exist in Vancouver, for not only ourselves, [but also] to be able to provide this space for other women and non-binary artists."
Lorna Brown is the curator of the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery’s newest exhibit “Beginning with the Seventies: Radial Change,” which brings forward impactful archived works that discuss politics, gender, sexuality and race.
