TALK: Cathy Van Eck November 9, 2017 10:30-12:20 4350 (Music room) Free Cathy Van Eck talks about her work. Bio: Cathy van Eck is a composer, sound artist, and researcher in the arts. She focuses on composing relationships between everyday objects, human performers, and sound. Her artistic work includes performances with live-electronics and installations with sound objects which she often designs herself. She is interested in setting her gestures into unusual and surprising relationships with sounds, mainly by electronic means. The result could be called “performative sound art”, since it combines elements from performance art, electronic music, and visual arts. Her work transcends genres and is presented at occasions as diverse as experimental or electronic music concerts, open air rock festivals, sound art gallery venues, digital art events, or performance art festivals. Cathy has a teaching position at the Sound Arts department of the University of the Arts in Bern, Switzerland. In her book Between Air and Electricity she investigated the use of microphones and loudspeakers as musical instruments.
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM SFU City Conversations: Rethinking and Repurposing Waste

Thursday, November 9 - 12:30 - 1:30 PM SFU Vancouver - Harbour Centre Room 7000 Free to attend, no registration required In coordination with the launch of Asim Waqif's new installation at Offsite, the Vancouver Art Gallery is pleased to co-present SFU City Conversations: Rethinking and Repurposing Waste. According to the City of Vancouver’s Zero Waste 2040 statistics, residents, businesses and institutions threw away approximately 351,000 tonnes of garbage in 2015, most of which could have been conserved, reused, recycled or composted instead of being sent to a landfill or incinerator. What more can we be doing to reduce the amount of urban waste in Vancouver, and where are there opportunities to repurpose said waste? On November 9th, 2017, join artist Asim Waqif for a conversation on rethinking waste. Joining Waqif will be Adam Corneil, Founder, Naturally Crafted, and Faisal Mirza, Senior Project Manager of Engineering Services with the City of Vancouver. These individuals view waste as a valuable resource and in some cases, have used the refuse of others to build their livelihoods. Hear about their paths to success in the circular economy, and then question, observe, and share your opinions on Vancouver’s system of waste management. It’s a conversation! As always, feel free to bring your lunch, and come early to ensure a seat.
Gender Equity? In Irish Universities

AQ 5067, Ellen Gee Room, SFU Burnaby No registration required for seminar. Dr Micheline Sheehy Skeffington, is a plant ecologist recently retired from the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG). She took a gender discrimination case against NUI Galway to the national Equality Tribunal. Making headlines in a landmark decision, the Tribunal ruled in her favour in November 2014, pointing to multiple failures in the promotion procedure that echo barriers faced by female academics elsewhere. Micheline donated her compensation money to help five other female lecturers in challenging their promotion decisions, and to support broader national and international movements for social justice. Please join us for this unique opportunity to share talk and strategy about gender equity in Irish and Canadian universities.
