Sites of Nonresistance.

War monuments, cenotaphs and honour rolls remind us daily of the most dramatic and familiar stories of war.  This exhibit tells war stories of a different kind, and lays out an alternative memorial landscape—the landscape of nonresistance.

These stories are gleaned from letters, diaries, newspapers, photographs, government documents and family histories found in the Mennonite Archives of Ontario. Together, they paint a picture of the Great War from a “peace church” perspective.

Monday, January 8, 2018 — 8:30 AM EST to Friday, April 13, 2018 — 5:00 PM EDT
Beyond Essays Grebel Gallery.

Conrad Grebel University College’s Peace and Conflict Studies program (PACS) at the University of Waterloo was the first peace studies program in Canada, and has remained a leader in peace education for 40 years. With PACS’ innovative approach to learning, students can choose arts-based assignment options in many courses.

Celebrate PACS 40th anniversary with us by experiencing some of the most compelling arts-based assignments completed by students in the program. This artwork highlights the diverse, innovative, and transformational nature of the PACS program and PACS students.

In 1817, the 20 year old Franz Schubert wrote a song for voice and piano about a fish. Two years later, he created a set of variations from this delightful theme which became the 4th movement of his immortal quintet nicknamed “The Trout”. Four friends and colleagues from the KW Symphony strings section joined by Catherine Robertson on piano bring you this loved work.

Every two years, orchestra@uwaterloo holds a Concerto and Aria Competition that is open to University of Waterloo students and recent graduates, and is judged by a panel of professional musicians.

  • What are the challenges of telling Mennonite stories?
  • Who gets to tell Mennonite stories?
