    "On Happiness Road" is an animated feature film from Taiwan. Please join us on Thursday, Oct 4 from 11:45a - 12:45p in The Animation Studio, located in room A3030 on campus.

    The film guides its audience through the island’s turbulent recent past. Born on April 5, 1975 (the same day Chiang Kai-shek died), the main character Chi lives through decades of political upheaval, as Taiwan wrestles with its identity and strives for democratic freedoms. “On Happiness Road” is Taiwan’s first 2D hand-drawn animated feature, and Director Sung Hsin-yin will be visiting Emily Carr to have a conversation about it’s creation.

    Join us to learn about the making of the film and for conversation with the director. The feature will be screening Oct 3 + 4 through the Taiwan Cultural Centre.

    The Vancouver Park Board Artists in Communities program builds community by making art together using principles of community cultural development.

    Residencies each year are hosted in participating community centres to support artists working in neighbourhoods and encourage a wide variety of interactions between artists and residents, who may not view themselves as creators or performers.

    The residency projects leave lasting physical or social legacies in the community, such as learning new creative processes, developing collaborative skills, or creating an artwork.

    Open to artists and artist teams working in any and all disciplines and living in Metro Vancouver

    It’s All in the Movies (https://youtu.be/3RUw9yKC7Os)
    EXHIBITION DESIGN INFLUENCED BY CINEMA

    The medium of cinema works through an unfolding process of perception. As a spectator of cinema, one is drawn into a dimensional world, where the experience of spectacle, narrative, and semiosis work together to percolate a film’s interest, context, and purpose. Cinema is affective, engaging, and critically contemplative. Through dynamic relations between the movement and colour of images, ambient, immersive, and musical sound, cultural and human perspective, cinema creates an altered experience of reality. This encourages individuals to reflect, through embodied and cognitive instances, on the fluctuating conditions of the world and human experience.
