A SPECIAL DAY AT THE OKANAGAN CAMPUS OF UBC TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 27th
Instead of meeting at our regular class time, students have the opportunity to be on campus for a visit from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. They also will be able to see the official unveiling and dedication of a sculptural installation that was commissioned to commemorate UBC’s Centennial
This event is a tremendous opportunity to showcase arts, culture, our university, and the Okanagan. The world will be watching on Tuesday! Students are encouraged to participate if they can, or follow the news if you can’t make it to campus.
Here is a link to important updates from the university: The Royal Visit
Classes are not officially cancelled and we do still also need to cover important topics for our course this week, but our timing can be flexible to allow you to make choices.
If you are at the university, hopefully you will have an opportunity to watch the official unveiling and dedication of the sculptural installation in the courtyard.
Les Louis is a member of the Lower Similkameen Band of the Okanagan Nation Alliance. This piece is reminiscent of a traditional Syilx summer lodge, built with pine logs. Each logs tells a story with pictograph symbols. The Okanagan territory includes an area that spans over 69,000 kilometers.
