NEW LISTINGS

1.   Supporting Atlantic Canadian Women of All Ages

Community Leadership Symposium for men and women

August 17-18, 2011
Holland College
Charlottetown, PEI

The Atlantic Summer Institute approach:

The Atlantic Summer Institute (ASI) approach to developing women’s leadership is based around ASI values of inclusion, integration of official languages, cultural competency, gender and principles of adult education with a number of inner and outer themes. The inner themes are to do with developing confidence, a strong sense of identity and self worth, rejecting self limiting beliefs and developing the emotional and mental resilience required to take up a leadership position. The outer themes are to do with engaging with the external world in terms of developing social capital and support systems through networks and alliances, understanding the use of power and influence at an individual, community and structural level.

For today’s and tomorrow’s community leaders
Bilingual event for men and women

The philosophy of this symposium is to foster an inclusive approach to community leadership, in which women and men act as allies in each other’s leadership and are able to bring their distinctive contributions. This will mean that a greater leadership resource can be unlocked to overcome the barriers and underlying issues which affect community health and safety.

Participants will:
–    be challenged to set their leadership goals
–    reflect and identify their leadership development needs and how to overcome barriers
–    acquire new knowledge, skills and ideas
–    learn how to use tools such as the Circle of Health to develop an action plan.

Topics will include:
–    What are the issues facing female leadership in communities and why should it matter to men?
–    Creating a culture of participation ‘I need we to be fully me.’
–    How do we build a Value Network of Leaders in Atlantic Canada and use the Circle of Health as a framework to take action on underlying barriers in communities?

Includes a free children’s program for ages 3 to 14!

For more information, call (902) 894-3399.

EN SUPPORT AUX FEMMES DE TOUS ÂGES DU CANADA ALTANTIQUE

Symposium sur le leadership pour les hommes et les femmes

Les 17 et 18 août 2011
Collège Holland
Charlottetown, Î.-P.-É.

Approche de l’Institut d’été de l’Atlantique

L’approche de l’Institut d’été de l’Atlantique (IEA), visant le développement du leadership des femmes, est fondée sur les valeurs de l’IEA en matière d’inclusion, d’intégration des langues officielles, des compétences culturelles, de genre, et des principes de l’éducation aux adultes avec un certain nombre de thèmes intérieurs et extérieurs. Les thèmes intérieurs sont liés au renforcement de la confiance, un grand sentiment d’identité et de confiance en soi, en rejetant l’oppression intériorisée et les croyances limitatives, et au renforcement de la résistance émotionnelle et mentale nécessaire pour assumer un poste de direction. Les thèmes extérieurs sont liés à la communication avec le monde extérieur en matière de renforcement du capital social et des systèmes de soutien grâce aux réseaux et alliances, en comprenant l’utilité du pouvoir et de l’influence à l’échelle individuelle, structurelle et communautaire.

Pour les dirigeants communautaires d’aujourd’hui et de demain
Événement bilingue pour les hommes et les femmes

Ce symposium vise à promouvoir une approche inclusive à l’égard du leadership communautaire selon laquelle les femmes et les hommes jouent le rôle d’alliés dans le cadre du leadership de chacun et sont en mesure d’apporter leurs propres contributions. Cela signifie qu’une ressource au leadership plus importante peut devenir accessible afin de surmonter les obstacles et les problèmes sous-jacents qui ont une incidence sur la santé et la sécurité de la collectivité.

Les participants devront effectuer les étapes suivantes :
–    Établir leurs objectifs de leadership
–    Réfléchir afin de déterminer leurs besoins en matière de développement du leadership et la façon de surmonter les obstacles
–    Obtenir de nouvelles connaissances, aptitudes et idées
–    Utiliser des outils tels que le Cercle de la santé afin d’élaborer un plan d’action

Sujets abordés :
–    Quels sont les problèmes qui se présentent en matière de leadership des femmes dans les collectivités et pourquoi les hommes doivent-ils s’y intéresser?
–    Création d’une culture de participation « Être soi-même à 100 % »
–    Comment établir un réseau de valeurs des leaders au Canada atlantique et utiliser le Cercle de la santé en tant que cadre permettant de confronter les obstacles sous-jacents dans les collectivités?

Inclus un programme gratuit pour les enfants âgés de 3 à 14 ans!

Pour plus de renseignements, composez le (902) 894-3399.

2.  Outdoor Screening

Cinema Politica Charlottetown and this town is small
will present a downtown outdoor screening of:
Art In Action/L’Art en Action
Charlottetown, Wednesday July 13th, 2011 (rain date July 14) – OUT-DOOR SCREENING! At 9pm   

In the backyard of 35 Upper Prince Street in downtown Charlottetown, Cinema Politica Charlottetown in partnership with this town is small will show “Art in Action/L’Art en Action”. An abundance of art, love, and idealism : that’s what fuels Annie Roy and Pierre Allard, the founders of l’Action Terroriste Socialement Acceptable. For the past decade, ATSA has made performance an act of intervention, an art that engages citizens in the struggle for a humane and civil society. Magnus Isacsson homes his camera on the political idealism and domestic demands of the Roy-Allard partnership and finds inspiration, generosity and integrity in their exemplary life project. A powerful, moving and candid documentary that makes you believe in a better tomorrow.

ATSA ( Action Terroriste Socialement Acceptable ) is an organization founded in 1997 by artists Pierre Allard and Annie Roy to create so-called urban interventions: installations, performances and realistic stagings bearing witness to the various social and environmental aberrations which preoccupy the two artists. Their works investigate and transform the urban landscape and restore the citizen’s place in the public realm, depicting it as a political space open to discussion and societal debates. ATSA promotes an open, active and responsible vision of artists as citizens contributing to the sustainable development of their society.

Cinema Politica originated in Vancouver, B.C. in 2001, and has expanded across the country as well as internationally, with a strong following in many Atlantic Canadian cities.  This non-profit organization enables local communities to band together in order to exhibit the independent, innovative and entertaining documentaries and stories that interest them most, and which are so often underrepresented by mainstream media. UPEI campus groups and community group members committed to positive social change have come together to inspire and educate audiences about important socio-political, cultural, environmental and economic issues. Audiences are invited to join the post-film discussion.  New members are welcome.  If interested please e-mail charlottetown@cinemapolitica.org or check out our page on Facebook.

Charlottetown screenings will be held every second Monday of the month. Donations are encouraged (suggested $2-$5) but no one will be turned away.

4.   PEIBWA – Murder Mystery Event

For many of us, Halloween is the holiday we love to hate.

You either:

A) want to dress up but have nowhere to go, or B) dislike the idea ofa costume but still want to go out and have fun with friends.

Sound familiar? In the end, you almost always end up sitting around looking at the walls (or a spouse), while watching Thriller on YouTube, wishing you’d gotten it together to do something (anything!) while everyone else seems to be out having fun.

Well guess what? All that’s about to change.

Save. This. Date!
This Halloween, PEIBWA presents…

“The Business of Murder”
Sponsored by: Stanley Bridge Country Resort

While the fine details of this “spooktacular” fundraising event are still being worked out, we do know it will be held on Saturday, October 29th and that you won’t want to miss out on all the fun which will include a reception, murder mystery event, 3 course meal, music, and more! Roundtrip transportation will be available from Charlottetown, thanks to our generous sponsor, Target Tours, and Stanley Bridge Country Resort is offering a special room rate for the event.

So get your spouse, friends or partners in crime ready because trust us; you do NOT want to miss what is shaping up to be THE event of the year.

Tickets go on sale soon. Mark your calendar now, because only a limited number will be available.  Don’t let another Halloween come and go without taking part in any of the fun.  Stay tuned for details!

Sincerely, Board of Directors
