The UBC Learning Exchange has been part of the downtown eastside community for fifteen years. I’ve been working there for two months now as the peer-led English conversation program coordinator. This campus is a community-driven place of learning, where people can make connections, share their gifts, skills and ideas, and in the process build capacity for social change. Through the month of October, in concert with our many partners, we are celebrating with a feast of events. For those of you working in social and environmental sustainability, you may be interested in the Coffee Cup Revolution on Monday, October 6th in Victory Square or perhaps the World Poetry Film Festival on Saturday, October 25th. You can view the full program here.
Update: POSTPONED: October 18th Operation Oblivion Screening. NEW DATE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22.
We are saddened by the news of the passing of one of the veterans featured in Operation Oblivion. Out of respect for the mourners, our October 18th screening of the film will be postponed. Please share the news of this postponement. The event will now take place on November 22.
