Between 1945 and 1980, the Celebration of Excellence, formally known as the Annual General Meeting, of the RSC was hosted at least once in every province of Canada, at 25 universities from coast to coast. In 2013, the RSC resumed the practice of moving the AGM around the country, beginning with a visit to Banff, Alberta. Following many successful, cross-Canada events, the 2017 COE will take place in friendly Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Preceding the Royal Society of Canada’s Celebration of Excellence is an event hosted at the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) by the College of New Scholars and the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at UBC. This event is being presented in connection with the upcoming Insurgence/Resurgence exhibit at the gallery.

A man is seated alone on a public bench. He speaks to passersby, hoping to maybe start up a conversation with them just for a moment, to get out of his head. He blurts out bits and pieces, a kaleidoscope of his memories; burdens, joys, hurt—a moving and entangled composition of his impressions on and through life. Beside him, a hidden woman: discreet, invisible. Who, in a low voice, screams inaudible fragments about herself.

Citizen engagement with these issues to find our way forward together is critical.
