Film night: Kent Monkman
The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia will be screening three short films by artist Kent Monkman in conjunction with the exhibition Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience. Throughout each film, Monkman's alter-ego Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, exudes her sexuality to cleverly recast historical narratives and reconfigure versions of history to present an Indigenous perspective. Following the screening, join the Gallery's Indigenous Arts Programmer, Aiden Gillis, for a conversation about treaty relationships and misconceptions.
Films: Shooting Geronimo; Performance: Taxonomy of the European Male; Mary.
Admission: Free courtesy of BMO Free Access Thursday Nights

Pianist Sara Davis Buechner
Sara Davis Buechner is one of the most original concert pianists of our time, winning a bouquet of top prizes at the world’s premier international piano competitions. Noted for her musical command, cosmopolitan artistry, and visionary independence, Sara has performed as recitalist, chamber musician, and soloist with the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, and Philadelphia Orchestra—in venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Hollywood Bowl. Applauded for her “intelligence, integrity and all-encompassing technical prowess” (New York Times), “thoughtful artistry in the full service of music” (Washington Post), and “astounding virtuosity” (Philippine Star), Japan’s InTune? magazine sums up: “Buechner has no superior.” A proud transgender woman, Sara also appears as a speaker and performer at important LGBTQ events. For her Halifax solo piano recital, Sara Davis Buechner will perform works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Dana Suesse, and George Gershwin.
Tickets ($35 Adult, $25 Senior, $15 Student, $10 Child) are available in advance online at https://www.ceciliaconcerts.ca/concert/sara-davis-buechner/ or by calling 902-423-0143.

YouthProject Brunch Fundraiser' POSTPONED
Originally scheduled for Sunday, November 18, 2018, the Youth Project’s 14th Annual Auction & Brunch – our largest fundraiser of the year, which fully funds our three summer camps – has been postponed to the spring of 2019.
In consultation with our Youth Board, the Youth Project’s Board of Directors determined that, at this time, our organizational capacity is too limited to effectively host an event as vital as our annual Auction & Brunch on November 18.
All tickets purchased for November 18th’s event will be refunded immediately. Details about our rescheduled event will be announced in the coming months – keep in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
