Leisure Learning

During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, treat yourself to some peace and serenity with a relaxing Leisure Learning yoga and meditation class. Enjoy this one-day online Kundalini Yoga Meditations: Breaking Up Subconscious Patterns and Blocks on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022.

This month, writers and want-to-be writers should take advantage of two great writing courses: Self-Publishing & Marketing (in-person) and How to Edit Your Own Novel (online), both offered on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022. The hardest part is choosing which class to take (hint: both are offered again in the Winter term).

Gerry Yuam

Self Portrait of Gerry Yuam

All are welcome to enjoy Gerry Yaum's Families of the Dump/People who Live under the Freeway on display in the galleries of the UNB Art Centre until Dec. 15, 2022.

Gerry Yaum is a self-taught photographer with over 40 years of experience. He has been taking pictures of the people in the Mae Sot Garbage Dump since 2013 and the Klong Toey Slum in Bangkok since 2012. For him, the photographs are more than artworks, they help to educate, raise awareness, and interpret forgotten lives.

Upcoming 2023 exhibition

Join us on Friday, Jan. 13, 2023, at 5 p.m. for the opening of the bilingual exhibition, Fathom the depths of the Saint Lawrence Estuary: Art & Science/À des brasses de profondeur dans l’estuaire du St.-Laurent: Art et Science. This exhibition merges art and science, featuring maps, drone footage, time-lapse video, creative writing, and photography in a study of the submarine canyons of the Saint Lawrence Estuary.

These unique perspectives on this ecologically sensitive marine environment were formed by a research team of oceanographers, marine geoscientists, paleoceanographers, a photographer, and creative writers from UNB and the Université du Québec à Rimouski aboard the research vessel Coriolis II.

The exhibition will feature the photography of Jean-Christophe Lemay and the publication, Mailler les eaux/Mesh the Waters, and runs from Jan. 13 - Feb. 10, 2023.
