CultureNet Fall 2010 Chat Live Sessions – “Bring the Change: Exploring Art and Social Change”

Chat Live is an ongoing program at Capilano U. that is running once again this Fall 2010. Chat Live involves a series of informal discussions over lunch (always on Thursday, 11:30-12:30) on Thursdays throughout the term, covering a variety of topics from Facebook to human rights, from art to genocide.

Chat Live details and website here.

This term, the CultureNet program is sponsoring one of the sessions: “Bring the Change: Exploring Art and Social Change.”

Our session’s topic will be the broad spectrum of visual, musical, and written works (the creations of Picasso, Jenny Holzer, Michael Moore, Radiohead, Diego Rivera, and Bruce Mau to name only a few) that have harnessed art + technology as a spark for small- and large-scale political changes in our world.

We are running our sessions on three different dates:

Session 1
Thursday, Sepember 30 · 11:30am – 12:30pm
“Bring the Change: Art and Social Change”
Co-Hosted by Brian Ganter, Charles Macaulay, and James Siddall

Session 2
Thursday, October 21 · 11:30am – 12:30pm
“Worlds of Change: Art and Social Change Across the Globe”
Co-Hosted by Brian Ganter and Betsy Agar

Session 3
Thursday, November 25 · 11:30am – 12:30pm
“Visualizing change: Talking about Digital Art in the 21st Century”
Co-Hosted by Brian Ganter and Aurelea Mahood

Capilano University Cinephile Collective

It’s the most anticipated launch since the iPad: the recently formed Capilano University Cinephile Collective announces its first meetings of 2010. This student group is recruiting new members and writers. Anyone with an interest in talking about, critiquing, or writing about film is welcome. The energies of the collective will be devoted to launching an on-line pdf film journal in Spring 2010. Just like the iPad, the Cinephile Collective easily fits and rotates in your hand to adjust to your sitting position, projects its images in full colour, and offers a much more “intimate” experience than the standard clunky laptop! It also has extended battery life to accommodate frequent viewings of those longer 3-hour arthouse cinema masterpieces. For more information contact Adam Cook at or Culture Net faculty member, Brian Ganter (, who is acting faculty advisor for this new student group.

First Screening: Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Feb. 9th, 1pm @CSU Lounge
First Meeting: Feb. 11th, 12:30pm @ Maple Room 102

Hope to you see you there!
