Anahita Norouzi: Other Landscapes opens Oct. 14
Other Landscapes is a new exhibit at the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery of Dawson (just off the Upper Atrium cafeteria on the 2nd floor). Open from Oct. 14- Nov. 25, it presents several multimedia works from Montreal-based Iranian artist Anahita Norouzi. It stems from her long-term research interest in the cross sections of botany and colonial politics, experiences of immigration and displacement, as well as issues of identity and memory.
Taking the form of a multimedia installation, the project results from a collaboration between the artist and eight refugees from the Middle East and Africa.

Students discover Sustainable Happiness on Living Campus tour
Students in Melanie Doyle's Peace and Sustainable Happiness Advanced Studies in Psychology class were the first people to take a Living Campus Tour with a Sustainable Happiness theme on Sept. 13.
Led by Jennifer De Vera of the Sustainability Office and Azra Khan of Human Resources, both trained Sustainable Happiness facilitators, the tour began at the vegetable garden near the Upper Atrium, known as the Theatre Garden. It was offered as part of Dawson's Peace Week 2021 Program.
The students were taken on an outdoor tour that included about 10 stops, including the Peace Garden, the White Pine tree and the rooftop gardens.
In this photo, students Cassandra (left) and Thitrinh participate in an activity on the steps just outside the Upper Atrium. Jennifer and Azra distributed colourful chalks and invited the students to write a few words that make them happy on the steps. At the end of the exercise, the steps were full of colourful happy words. Cassandra's and Thitrinh's words were: coffee, music, animals and family, books, painting.
Employees and students who would like a tour are invited to contact the Sustainability Office to register: email@example.com
