Capilano University is going through a tumultuous time with changes being proposed that have not involved meaningful input from the students and faculty, or the broader community the university serves. Re-EDUCATE is the first in a series of events organized by Capilano University students, alumni, and instructors to begin a conversation with members of the community about Capilano University’s role in building culture, community, and creative entrepreneurship on the North Shore.
The first event is tonight, May 29, at the Café for Contemporary Art, 140 East Esplanade, starting at 6 p.m. with a cello performance by Evan Lamberton and a talk by artist Robert Sherrin. The speakers’ panel will start at 7 p.m. Speakers include Wendy Van Riesen, Nadia Bowcott, Kim Gruia and Roma Wilson.
