First Nations Art (Canada)

HONORING and MEMORIAL: All these Pages are dedicated to the memory of Martin Panamick. "Two Fish", logo of the Art Pages, is by Martin Panamick, (1956-1977) a talented Ojibwe-Odawa from West Bay Reserve, Manitoulin Island, in Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada . Martin was one of the young artists from Manitoulin who participated in the revival of Medicine Painting, which is influenced by the style (and cultural interests) of Norval Morrisseau, Canadian Ojibwe. Many of his pen sketches from the nature sketching walks he loved to take illustrate publications of the Cultural Foundation, among these a cookbook, Nishnabe Delights, of recipes collected from Manitoulin and the northern shore Reserves. He designed the eagle symbol, still used to identify crafts sold through the Cultural Foundation. His untimely death was a great loss to all who knew him, as well as anyone who loves art.

The Canada Council for the Arts

The Canada Council for the Arts is a national arm's-length agency created by an Act of Parliament in 1957. According to the Canada Council Act, the role of the Council is "to foster and promote the study and enjoyment of, and the production of works in, the arts." To fulfill this mandate, the Council offers a broad range of grants and services to professional Canadian artists and arts organizations in dance, interdisciplinary and performance art, media arts, music, theatre, visual arts, and writing and publishing. The Council administers the Killam Program of scholarly awards, the Governor General's Literary Awards and the Governor General's Awards in Visual and Media Arts. The Canadian Commission for UNESCO and the Public Lending Right Commission operate under its aegis.

What's new

The Certificate in Theatre Arts came about as a logical step in UCCB's long tradition of theatre production. All of the courses associated with the certificate are accredited and can be applied towards a Bachelor of Arts or another relevant degree at UCCB. The program has been designed to serve undergraduate students at UCCB, as well as members of the general public - teachers, adult educators, community theatre workers, arts administrators, cultural tourism officers - who want to develop their knowledge of theatre in a university setting.
