Reading: Carl Skoggard Reads From his Translation of Siegfried Krakauer’s ‘Georg’
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us at Open Sesame, downtown Kitchener’s distinctive gift shop/gallery/book store, for a reading by Carl Skoggard, translator of the novel Georg by Siegfried Kracauer. Best remembered today for his exploration of early German cinema (From Caligari to Hitler: A Psychological Study of the German Film), Siegfried Kracauer (1889-1966, pictured left) was the editor for cultural affairs at Germany’s leading liberal newspaper during the Weimar Republic.

Georg is a panorama of those pre-Nazi years as seen through the eyes of a rookie reporter. In a defeated nation seething with extremism right and left, young Georg is looking for something to believe in. For him, the past has become unusable; for nearly everyone he meets, paradise seems just around the corner. But which paradise? Kracauer’s grimly funny novel takes on a confused and dangerous time which can remind us of our own. The style is briskly cinematic.

About the Translator

Carl Skoggard enjoys reading German literature and for many years was an editor for the Repértoire International de la Littérature Musicale, with responsibility for German materials. His translation of Ein Jahr in Arkadien, an 1805 gay fiction by the eccentric Duke August of Saxe-Gotha and Altenburg, appeared as Year in Arcadia(Atropen Verlag) in 1999. Skoggard has also produced translations and commentaries for Walter Benjamin’s Berliner Kindheit um 1900 (Berlin Childhood circa 1900); Berliner Chronik (The ‘Berlin Chronicle’ Notices); and all of Benjamin’s little known 73 ‘Heinle sonnets,’ along with the original German and line-by-line commentary. Previously he served as staff writer for Nest: A Quarterly of Interiors.

Event Details

This event is co-sponsored by Open Sesame, Publication Studio Hudson, and the Waterloo Centre for German Studies at the University of Waterloo. Centre Director James Skidmore will moderate a Q&A after the reading. Light refreshments will be served, and those attending will receive a 20% discount on anything they purchase at the store. Copies of Georg will also be available for sale.

For further information, please contact Open Sesame (519.954.7722).

A Grand Journey @ Calvary United Church
Nov 25 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

A Grand Journey

DATE: Saturday November 25th 2017
TIME: 2:00PM
LOCATION: Calvary United Church (St. Jacobs)
MAP: 48 Hawkesville Rd., St. Jacobs, ON N2V 2A4

 

Water — it is powerful, symbolic and beautiful. Water is intertwined with life. People have always interacted with the streams, lakes, and oceans on the planet’s surface — in industry, in recreation, and in the arts.

On November 22 and 25, The Nota Bene Baroque Players will present a special multimedia concert, celebrating the Grand River, our region’s historic waterway. By exploring the Grand River in words, images, and music we come to realize that rivers all over the planet have much in common. Marianne Brandis, author of The Grand River, reads passages reflecting on rivers in general and on the Grand in particular, while Gerard Brender à Brandis‘s wood engravings of scenes along the river, most of which appear in the book, will be on display.

Nota Bene Baroque Players will perform music written by Baroque composers inspired by water, including works by Handel, Telemann, and Vivaldi. Original engravings, and copies of the book, will be available for purchase at the concert.

Of special interest will be the performance of a new composition, Bottlenecked, by collaborative Canadian composers Spy Dénommé-Welch & Catherine Magowan. Their work tells the story of the journey of a drop of water from its source to its final destination. The title of this new work alludes to the many possible economic and political issues currently surrounding water on both a local and global scale, including its protection, conservation, consumption, and control.

In presenting this performance art event, Nota Bene Baroque Players strive to foster a greater appreciation of the Grand River and its ecosystem. We also view this concert as an opportunity to reflect on issues surrounding water security which are currently under intense discussion, both in our region and globally.

Intro to Male Allyship @ Unit 300
Nov 29 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

A world where boys and men are engaged in ending sexual violence and oppression

Want to learn more about the role of men in ending sexual and gender based violence? Male Allies, a program of the Sexual Assault Centre of Waterloo Region (SASC), is offering a free, introductory community workshop in order to have a constructive and open dialogue. We will talk about gender, masculinity, sexual violence and bystander intervention. We will offer the opportunity to think critically about the ways in which we contribute to a culture of sexual violence and how we can take tangible steps to create change.

Male Allies

Organizer of Intro to Male Allyship

The mission of the Male Allies Program is to engage boys and men, with their unique ability and responsibility, in ending systemic and everyday forms of gender-based violence. We do this through programming that provides alternative narratives of masculinity, opportunity for self-reflection and dialogue, and challenges harmful language and behaviour.

A film called TOMORROW @ Original Princess Theatre
Jan 23 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm


Divest Waterloo is partnering with The Working Centre and Princess Cinemas to host TOMORROW.

Winner of the 2016 César Award for Best Documentary Film (2016 Cesar Awards Full Winners List | Hollywood Reporter)

TOMORROW is not just a film, it is the beginning of a movement seeking to encourage local communities around the world to change the way they live for the sake of our planet.

This screening is part of the Ecology-To-Scale Film Series – a documentary series that deals with ecological issues from a local perspective. So much of public discussion on environmental issues is at an unimaginably large scale that leaves many people feeling hopeless and powerless.

The Ecology-To-Scale Film Series is one component of The Working Centre’s Finding Our Place: A Year of Reflection and Discussion, exploring the thought and themes of renowned poet and author Wendell Berry. For nearly forty years Wendell Berry has insisted that it is at a local scale that environmental issues are most properly and effectively addressed.

Plan to join us for an informative and uplifting evening!

When: Tuesday January 23, 2018

Where: Princess Cinema (Original), 6 Princess St W, Waterloo, ON

Admission: Regular Princess pricing.

Member: $8.00; Non-Member: $12.00; Seniors (65 & over): $9.00

Legacies of US Cold War Policies: The Quest for Justice in the Marshall Islands

 

In the race against the Soviet Union for nuclear supremacy during the Cold War, the United States tested a vast array of powerful nuclear bombs and missiles in the Marshall Islands while conducting studies on the effects of human exposure to radioactive fallout. Based on extensive archival research, Smith-Norris will discuss the health and environmental consequences of these American policies and the Marshall Islanders’ ongoing quest for justice in Washington and the United Nations.

Bio

An Associate Professor in the Department of History at the University of Saskatchewan, she is the author of Domination and Resistance: The United States and the Marshall Islands during the Cold War (University of Hawaii Press, 2016).

Ecology-To-Scale Film Series: Economics of Happiness @ Original Princess Theatre
Feb 27 @ 7:15 pm – 8:45 pm

Co-presented by Divest Waterloo, The Working Centre and Princess Cinemas.

‘Lonely people have never been happy people. And globalization is creating a very lonely planet.’ So says activist and author Vandana Shiva in The Economics of Happiness, an incisive documentary that links today’s global crises (climate change, terrorism, the financial crash) with personal malaise (rising levels of depression and the pervasive emptiness of consumer society). The cause? The macroeconomic structure of globalization, a massive conglomerate of megabanks, multinational corporations, and international financial institutions, all constantly expanding in a deregulated environment that takes profit, and never people, as the raison d’être of all things.
“The cure? Localization. A return to community, where people can forge connections with neighbors instead of advertising models, and buy food from a nearby farmer instead of the industrial agricultural machine. It is the economic and social bond among fellow citizens, and their very interdependence, insists economic analyst Helena Norberg-Hodge, that allows them to be truly happy.

It’s our 5th Annual Jazz Night Fundraiser – order your tickets!

Jazz Night ArtAs the calendar heads into spring and the winter melts away, step out of the cool outdoors and enter a warm room full of music, beauty, and love. Get swept away in the smooth jazz played live by professional musicians. Cut a rug with a friend or special someone. Lock arms with a wineglass or beer while perusing the dessert-bar. Come together to support the beautiful work of Bridges to Belonging.

Featuring a trio of musicians: Tim Louis, Matthew Lima, and Don McDougall. Our talented MC, 570 NEWS’ own Jennifer Campbell, will keep the night rolling. Performances by the talented people we serve will leave you speechless.
And much, much more! Order your tickets today at https://5thannualjazznight.eventbrite.ca/

We hope to see you on March 6th!

At 6:45 pm the doors will open. Guests can enjoy a drink, some appetizers, and start bidding on our silent auction items. The music will begin at 7: 15 pm. At 9:30 pm we will announce our silent auction winners, and our magical night will come to an end, with proceed supporting the work of Bridges to Belonging.


Bridges to Belonging is a local non-profit organization working towards a Waterloo Region where everyone belongs – where we value meaningful relationships, honour choices and dreams, and celebrate the uniqueness of each person. We rely on our generous community to help people facing barriers to full community inclusion to create the lives they want to live.
