The Northern Sport Centre Has the Power to Move You

The NSC is a world-class sport and fitness facility that provides Northern BC with the power to move, but in reality, it’s the members, user groups and staff who move us.

Colour at the Ontario Science Centre

@ VOL 32 ON MAY 06, 2014

Colour at the Ontario Science is an integral part of our vision since our opening in 1969.  From the three hues in our iconic logo, to use in defining architecture and way finding, colour assists 1 million visitors a year setting the stage for interactives and copy panels in our halls.  Colour changes in response to our needs, but also helps define interactions, resolve questions and enhance the visitor experience. Elgin Cleckley, Senior Exhibit Designer of the Science Centre, takes a quick tour of the Ontario Science Centre discussing the colour histories of the past and how they have evolved into the colour language we use today.

The Odyssey Project

"It seeks to demonstrate how artistic cooperation transcends class, racial and social barriers ... and serves as an alternative to incarceration and penalty."In "The Odyssey Project" from PechaKucha Santa Barbara Vol. 14, Ahmed Asi describes the collaborative theater process between youth from a juvenile detention facility in Santa Barbara county and undergraduate students from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Using the template of Homer's Odyssey, the participants gather on the university campus to explore the mythic elements in their lives in order to reconstruct the epic poem in their own voices. The project leads to a public performance at a local theater. Everyone on this creative journey is a hero or heroine. The project is designed to honor youth in identifying their heroic life mission and map a course of action. It employs theater arts as a strategy for inspiring life affirming choices.
