Popular Art is the name given to the artistic creations made by peasants, indigenous people or craftsmen with no formal artistic training. A traditional popular art item is handmade and has a functional purpose opposing an art object that is made for aesthetic purposes only, however, in the XXI Century technique has evolved to a more aesthetic representation.

Presented by MexicoFest, we invite all art enthusiasts to attend this free exhibition at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre on Mexican Popular Art objects.

In collaboration with the Public Scholars Initiative (PSI), the IKBLC Community Engagement & Programs division presents the “PhDs Go Public Research Talk Series,” which showcases doctoral students telling their community-engaged research stories in just under seven minutes.

In “Human(e) Interactions with the Environment,” nine PhD students from UBC’s Public Scholars Initiative engage the public by using the Pecha Kucha format to present on how their research is contributing to the public good, and making a change in the world.  This year’s PSI themes include education, environment, culture, social justice, and health.

This event happened on Wednesday, 15 March 2017.
