Grebel Gallery Exhibit | New Fraktur @ CGR
May 6 – Oct 25 all-day

Meg Harder is an interdisciplinary artist working and living in the Grand River Watershed. Harder graduated with a BA in Fine Art from the University of Waterloo, which included a six month exchange at Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem. She studied under Paula Wilson at Haystack Mountain school of crafts in 2018. She was the 2015 Eastern Comma Artist in Residence at Rare Charitable Research Reserve and at Vermont Studio Centre in 2018. She has exhibited at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, Contemporary Art Forum of Kitchener and Area, and The Museum, Kitchener. She is a recent recipient of the Ontario Arts Council Emerging Artist Project Grant.

Harder’s present research focuses on artistic practices that expand and disrupt canonized art forms and narrative genres to express emerging realities and revisionist histories. She draws on fraktur folk art, an imaginative and densely detailed illuminated calligraphy, historically produced by early Mennonite settlers to Ontario. Fraktur was traditionally made to venerate important religious and cultural texts and was displayed in everyday contexts like the walls of homes and in the covers of bibles and hymnals. In recognition of her ancestral traditions, her ink and gouache drawings carry forward the aesthetic sensibilities of fraktur and Biblical myth, while reframing their contents with a queer, feminine, and bioregional optic. By reinterpreting these archived images in a personal lexicon of motifs and symbols to create fictive environments, she aims to disarm exploitative narratives and create space for new histories and futures.

Invasive Species Removal – Buckthorn @ rare Charitable Research Reserve
May 8 @ 9:30 am

Invasive Species Removal – Buckthorn

Description:

Wednesday, May 8, 2019
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Meet at Lamb’s Inn

Join us and help rare remove invasive species! Common Buckthorn was introduced to Canada to be used in hedgerows and windbreaks. It causes harm to the economy and the environment by out-competing native plants, reducing biodiversity, degrading the quality of wildlife habitat and can hosting oat crown rust and soybean aphids, both of which reduce crop yields. It is effective at spreading since it is a laxative to wildlife and can grow in a wide range of habitats.

Identification of invasive species training will be provided on site as well as instruction on proper removal techniques. This is a great opportunity for those looking to gain in field experience with ecological restoration and become more familiar with flora of southern Ontario.

Cost: This event is FREE

Healthy Yards: Planning 201 | RAIN Coach @ Reep Green Solutions House
May 8 @ 7:00 pm

These workshops will give you an introduction to designing beautiful, functional, and healthy yards that are rain smart and beneficial to nature and people alike. These workshops will focus on rain smart techniques and the best places to integrate them into your outdoor space, including:

  • rain gardens
  • naturalized landscaping
  • infiltration galleries
  • rainwater harvesting
  • permeable pavement
  • other aspects of healthy yards, such as attracting bees and butterflies

    WORKSHOP # 2: HEALTHY YARDS 201 | PLANNING

    • Presentation: 7:00 p.m.
    • Design Exercise: 7:20 – 9:00 p.m.

    This workshop is perfect for Do-it-Yourselfers who have an early-stage plan for their healthy yard and desire additional design support to fulfill their vision. We will build upon the concepts and principles learned in Healthy Yards: Idea Spark & Planning and guide you through a more detailed design for your healthy yard project.

    The workshop will specifically focus on project planning and planting design for rain gardens and naturalized landscapes, including topics such as:

    • planting for year round interest
    • the best plants for rain gardens
    • materials calculations (i.e. compost, sand, mulch)

    Participants will learn how to develop a design for a part (or all) of their yard and create a shopping list for plants and related materials required to implement the project successfully.

    Come with a specific gardening project in mind, including its rough size and location. This could possibly be developed during the Healthy Yards: Idea Spark & Planning workshop. We will develop a more detailed drawing of your garden during the workshop to effectively determine the number of plants and other materials you will require, so knowledge of the dimensions, sun exposure, and soil conditions (wet, dry, or moist or sand, silt or clay) will be helpful.

Guarded Girls — A play from Green Light Arts @ The Registry Theatre
May 8 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

ABOUT THE SHOW

Guarded Girls poster Sid has been transferred all over the country and knows she’s bad. Brit is in for something she claims she didn’t do. Kit has made some “bad choices” and is tormented by her secrets. The Guard has a job to do. Meanwhile, kids are growing up, waiting for bad moods to pass, and for their parents to come home.

This powerful new work by Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman reveals the complex ways in which our prison system affects generations of women and how thin the line can be that separates those of us who are on the inside vs. those of us who are on the outside of Corrections.

Guarded Girls was originally commissioned by Green Light Arts to humanize women navigating both sides of Canada’s Corrections system. Both Tarragon Theatre and Green Light Arts developed the play. Tarragon Theatre produced the World Premiere in-association with Green Light Arts in Toronto, Mar 26, 2019 – May 5, 2019.

Nudie, In Concert @ Alternatives Journal (A\J) Production office, Old Boehmer Box Building
May 10 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Nudie | House Concert at the Old Boehmer Box Factory | Presented by Alternatives Journal and Princes Cinemas | 8pm Friday May 10, 2019 (Doors at 7pm)
HE CALLS HIMSELF NUDIE (a nod to Nashville rhinestone cowboy tailor Nudie Cohn) and he hangs his guitar in Charlottetown, PEI. We’re very pleased to present Nudie in a lovely intimate house concert format at the office of A\J.

His brand new album Everything’s Different in the Night is an absolute gem. Nudie’s music transports your soul. You’ll almost think you’ve travelled into the deep past with Nudie’s timeless takes on love lost. And then he’ll jet you into a modern dilemma of the displaced Maritimer with a touching melody about coming home to the Island.

Attending live music by independent artists is one of the sweetest acts community action and environmental spirit. At A\J we have periodically brought music to our community (as much as we can muster – it’s a fun extra to our day-to-day). This upcoming instance simply happened organically. I saw Nudie in Charlottetown back in 2005, playing on the Harbourfront grounds with a buddy. He was great. I hadn’t seen him again until just a couple of months ago at a local house concert. House concerts are great. They perform triple duty: they support an artist’s ability to make a living, they make music available at a lovely intimate grassroots level, and they connect people – house concerts are a social engine that builds community.

We invite you to this “house concert” of Nudie music. In the tradition of the format, all proceeds go to the artist. You can expect to be thoroughly entertained, and enjoy meeting a range of folks from our local community (and some visiting Maritimers), all who share a love of the live music experience. This event is a co-presentation of Princess Cinemas & Alternatives Journal.

NOTE: THIS SPECIAL EVENT TAKES PLACE IN A TURN OF THE CENTURY FACTORY ON DUKE STREET IN KITCHENER. PARKING ON STREETS NEARBY. ENTER BUILDING OFF DUKE STREET.

$20. All proceeds go to the artist.
Tickets include: Light snacks at intermission – some generously provided by the magnificent Breadbarons of Kitchener Market.

Guarded Girls poster Sid has been transferred all over the country and knows she’s bad. Brit is in for something she claims she didn’t do. Kit has made some “bad choices” and is tormented by her secrets. The Guard has a job to do. Meanwhile, kids are growing up, waiting for bad moods to pass, and for their parents to come home.

This powerful new work by Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman reveals the complex ways in which our prison system affects generations of women and how thin the line can be that separates those of us who are on the inside vs. those of us who are on the outside of Corrections.

Guarded Girls was originally commissioned by Green Light Arts to humanize women navigating both sides of Canada’s Corrections system. Both Tarragon Theatre and Green Light Arts developed the play. Tarragon Theatre produced the World Premiere in-association with Green Light Arts in Toronto, Mar 26, 2019 – May 5, 2019.

Warning: Strong language, mature themes, nudity.

Online Violence – Redefining the ‘Trolling’ and ‘Cyberbullying’ Narratives @ Federation Hall, University of Waterloo
May 16 @ 6:30 pm

Dear Friends,

It’s disturbing… but our political climate is stirring up hostility on and offline among a growing number of young white men, primarily directed toward those with feminist, anti-racist beliefs. When we give hateful words a platform under the guise of “objectivity” and ‘free speech’, we treat human rights as a matter of abstract theoretical debate. This kind of abstraction, partially based on the false idea that words do not cause harm, has very real consequences for women and many other marginalized groups. This talk will explore how gendered online harassment and other hateful and dehumanizing discourse causes palpable harm, and what we can do to build communities and institutions that uphold human rights.

In response to this, and in partnership with the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University, we’re excited to be hosting guest speaker, Steph Guthrie! She is a feminist advocate, organizer and analyst focusing on the intersections of gender, culture, and technology. As founder of Women in Toronto Politics, she produces events and online resources to promote a more gender-inclusive civic discourse. She’ll be Redefining “Trolling” and “Cyberbullying” Narratives, and taking a closer look at online violence against women.

Thursday, May 16th, 2019
6:30PM to 8:30PM (Doors open at 6:00PM)
Federation Hall, University of Waterloo
Until May 2nd: $10 | After May 2nd: $15

This is a special edition of our annual Sexual Assault Prevention Month event, also honouring our Centre’s 30th Anniversary! Join us for this important community conversation!

May 19 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

ABOUT THE SHOW

Guarded Girls poster Sid has been transferred all over the country and knows she’s bad. Brit is in for something she claims she didn’t do. Kit has made some “bad choices” and is tormented by her secrets. The Guard has a job to do. Meanwhile, kids are growing up, waiting for bad moods to pass, and for their parents to come home.

This powerful new work by Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman reveals the complex ways in which our prison system affects generations of women and how thin the line can be that separates those of us who are on the inside vs. those of us who are on the outside of Corrections.

Guarded Girls was originally commissioned by Green Light Arts to humanize women navigating both sides of Canada’s Corrections system. Both Tarragon Theatre and Green Light Arts developed the play. Tarragon Theatre produced the World Premiere in-association with Green Light Arts in Toronto, Mar 26, 2019 – May 5, 2019.

Warning: Strong language, mature themes, nudity.
