JUL 03   Communists in the Sugar Beet Fields? The Industry in the 1930s The sugar beet industry has had a profound impact on southern Alberta. Historian and author Belinda Crowson focuses on one decade of that long history – the 1930s – and offers a glimpse into Southern Alberta’s “sugar-coated” history. Crowson has spent several years researching sugar beet history for her latest publication.

JUL 17   Locating the Trickster in First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Art Join Jaime Warn for a candid approach to understanding both the art created by indigenous people of this country, and the people who created it. The trickster found in most FNMI cultures is a boundary crosser without definition, and often a shape shifter who educates the people on values for the greater good of all and communicates philosophies of healing and renewal important to many contemporary FNMI artists.

              Lethbridge-based Jaime Warn is a Chippewa/Muncey Delaware from southern Ontario artist and mother. She completed her MA on the Trickster in Contemporary First Nations Art and currently works as a sessional for The University of Lethbridge, lecturing on the history of North American Indian Art. Warn’s art practice has recently shifted from painting to performance, further exploring trickster strategies that challenge colonialism.
