The black-tie gala was held at Tabaret Hall on campus, and featured a variety of talented black performers and speakers, including American author and transgender activist, Janet Mock. Staying true to its purpose, the candlelit tables were adorned with names of important black figures in history instead of numbers.

Awaken your alternative side at the Awakening Consciousness Expo

While not a school, and not affiliated with J.K. Rowling’s fantasy world, the expo will give attendees the opportunity to learn about alternative methods of healing, delve deeper into the occult, and learn about magick from some of the best in the field. The event is sponsored by members of the Evolving Consciousness meetup in Ottawa.

undercurrents: Take a break from tech with Listen to Me

In a world where the traditional act of dating is becoming dated, Catherine Ballachey and Stephanie Henderson are bringing Listen To Me, a dynamic and nontraditional play, to Ottawa’s theatre scene. Listen To Me allows audience members to interact with performers in a “speed dating” setting where delving deeper than smalltalk, without the distraction of technology, is the ultimate goal.

Discovering the ups and downs of love in Love’s Labour’s Lost

One of the best things about this adaptation of the play, and of Shakespeare’s writing in general, is that despite its antiquity it remains fresh in the eye of the beholder. Shakespeare’s writing still seems as relevant today as it was in the 1600s because of Shakespeare’s ability to understand the core of people’s nature and depict it in his complex characterizations, said Gough.

Geek out at the Ottawa Geek Market

Keeping with the theme of the festival, students were able to apply for a $1,000 scholarship by submitting pieces of self-made art in one of three categories—visual art, sculptures, and costuming. Although it was not required, most of the art centered around fandom and geek related content, allowing applicants to share their love for the things they are passionate about through art.
