Open mic night to cross cultural boundaries

A teepee in the Campus Community Garden is the setting for an evening of poetry from all over the world tonight—Monday, October 3.

The event, entitled “The alchemy machine: poetry global,” is also open to spoken word performance, readings of prose or the work of a favourite author, says organizer Richard Douglass-Chin, a professor in the Department of English Language, Literature, and Creative Writing.

Drum social to celebrate Aboriginal and First Nations communities of Windsor-Essex

A drum social this weekend at the St. Clair Centre for the Arts sets the stage for celebrations, gatherings and new beginnings among the Aboriginal and First Nations communities of Windsor-Essex, says Russell Nahdee, coordinator of the University’s Aboriginal Education Centre.

“The intent is to promote our identity by focusing on our culture, our languages, our achievements, our children and our values as Native people,” says Nahdee, one of the organizers. “It is an awareness event for the general public to learn, to see and hear what we as a people are all about.”
