The Simon Fraser Public Interest Research Group (SFPIRG) is a student-funded and student-directed resource centre dedicated to social and environmental justice.
The Simon Fraser Public Interest Research Group (SFPIRG) currently resides in TC 326, a lounge and office space in the Rotunda at SFU Burnaby. This space is leased to SFPIRG by the Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS), through a Sublease. The space the SFSS occupies in the Rotunda is leased to them by SFU, through a Head Lease. The Head Lease for all of the SFSS’s space in the Rotunda has no set expiry date, extending automatically until the new Student Union Building (SUB) opens and the SFSS moves into its new offices. The Sublease for SFPIRG’s space in the Rotunda expires on June 30, 2018, with the very real possibility that it will not be extended unless SFPIRG receives a guarantee of space elsewhere on campus.
SFPIRG's Teresa Dettling spoke with Jesse last week.

|Lief Hall||Althea Thauberger's Ecce Homo||Unpacking Art||SFU Gallery|
What does it mean to have a public art collection? What purpose does it serve? A public art collection brings together objects that pertain to varied histories, cultures and time periods into one space. The SFU Art Collection has over 5,500 artworks with approximately 1,000 works on public display around SFU's campuses, while the remainder are housed within the art storage vault. The collection is largely regional and Canadian from the 20th century with works ranging from Emily Carr and Bill Reid to Carl Beam and Greg Curnoe. The practice of collecting art in this context is a public endeavour, one that has the ability to provide a framework for diverse discussions to emerge.
Unpacking Art: Lunchtime Talks on Works in the SFU Art Collection is returning this fall with members of the SFU community leading lunch sessions to "unpack" the context and the questions raised by works of art in the collection.
Each artwork brought forward during these talks will be expanded on given the speakers own background, developing conversations that are contingent on their research and curiosities.
Lief Hall is a composer, singer-songwriter, director/choreographer and creator of opera, musical theatre, video and installation. Her interdisciplinary installation and performance works explore themes of nature, technology and the body as they relate to mythology, feminism and the production of cultural ideology.
Hall was previously the vocalist for Vancouver no wave punk band ‘Mutators’ (2007), vocalist for the improvisational trio ‘Glaciers‘ (2009), and one half of Canadian ‘femme noir’ pop duo MYTHS (2012). Lief Hall’s solo musical works include improvised and extended voice and experimental electronic ‘pop’ which integrates performance, video, photography and costume making.
This series encourages participation from audiences that are new to visual art and to the SFU Art Collection.

|Drew Ann Wake, Gordon Christie and Martina Norwegian||Thunder in Our Voices||http://grunt.ca/exhibitions/|
This night of Indigenous storytelling showcases Thunder in Our Voices, a collection of short, animated films produced by Drew Ann Wake, Gordon Christie and Martina Norwegian with audio taken from stories from elders and activists in the villages along the Mackenzie River. Such stories were recorded as hearings in the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry, sparking one of Canada's most extensive national debates into Indigenous communities relationships to their land, sovereignty and resource development. Audio tapes from these hearings were uncovered, again, years later by Drew Ann and led her to create an extensive, emotional and powerful collection of short films with the voices of a generation fighting for their rights to their land.
Part 2 of a series on Speak Up! examning critical and indigenous perspectives on Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation
"For too long, the absence of representations of Two-Spirit people, art, and being from contemporary popular culture has been equally embedded in hegemonic practices of colonization. With UnSettled, I explore the art and being of Two-Spirit artists, and in turn, they expose the issues of historical extermination of Two-Spirit people, the lack of alternative aboriginal sexuality and gender in contemporary Western culture/media, the Two-Spirit movement and future as a part of the reclamation of Two-Spirit identity and practice."
— Adrian Stimson
Queer Arts Festival 2017: UnSettled is curated by Two-Spirit and queer-identified Indigenous artists, and developed in collaboration with Indigenous arts organizations. The term “Two-Spirit” is used by many Indigenous people to describe their gender, sexual and spiritual identity—often inclusive of all Indigenous LGBTQ+—in reclaiming and restoring traditional concepts suppressed by colonial heteronormativity.
UnSettled presents work from a Two-Spirit perspective, exploring contemporary roles and experiences, as well providing a platform for innovation and experimentation at the intersection between the Indigenous and queer art milieux. UnSettled deploys artistic and critical discourse to focus on Two-Spirit resilience with work addressing power, representation, sexuality, language, body, tradition, memory, colonial narratives, and knowledge sharing. Highlights include performances by Cris Derksen with the Chippewa Travellers and the Allegra Chamber Orchestra, Kinnie Starr with DJ O Show and Tiffany Moses, contemporary dance with Circadia Indigena, lemonTree creations’ dance theatre work MSM [men seeking men], and of course QAF’s signature visual art show curated this year by Adrian Stimson.

Vanessa Dion Fletcher employs porcupine quills, Wampum belts, and menstrual blood to reveal the complexities of what defines a body physically and culturally. She links these ideas to personal experiences with language, fluency, and understanding. All of these themes are brought together in the context of her Potawatomi and Lenape ancestry, and her learning disability caused by a lack of short-term memory. Her work is held in the Indigenous Art Center Collection in Gatineau, Quebec. In 2016, Dion Fletcher graduated from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago with an M.F.A in performance. She is the recipient of the Canada Council for the Arts International Residency in Santa Fe, New Mexico U.S.A.

Maps and Dreams is a group exhibition of work by contemporary artists that explores conceptions and implications of land use through cultural and industrial lenses. The exhibition specifically considers the territory of the Dane-zaa people of northeastern British Columbia, now in Treaty 8. Borrowing the title from Hugh Brody's book Maps and Dreams, a 1981 anthropological study of the Dane-zaa, the exhibition includes work by artists who consider how this land and its intersection with human use is articulated, represented and contested.
