11:10 a.m. Welcome

Ajay Patel, President and CEO, VCC

 
11:15 a.m. VCC's Mental Health and Well-being Strategic Initiative launch Ajay Patel, President and CEO, VCC

After extensive consultation from employees and students, Vancouver Community College (VCC) is launching a Mental Health and Well-being Framework.

Created in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association British Columbia Division (CMHA BC) and Healthy Minds | Healthy Campuses, as well as guided by VCC’s Mental Health and Well-being Steering Committee, the framework garnered over 1,500 responses from members of the college community by way of focus groups, dialogues, and a campus-wide survey. The framework aims to guide the college’s well-being efforts in promoting mental health for the next five years (2022-2026).  

11:20 a.m. Live music Theda Phoenix, VCC Alumna  
11:30 a.m. Keynote: Tools for taking care of our mental health and well-being Sarah Peyton, Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication and Neuroscience Educator What does research show us is the best way to take care of ourselves? What do isolation and loneliness do to us, and how can we counteract them? Join Sarah Peyton for fun, surprising information on our brains and what they need.
12:30 p.m. Chair yoga Sandra Jara (sponsored by SUVCC) Practicing yoga regularly provides countless benefits, both physical and mental. The class is for all levels, whether you have practiced before or if it is your first time doing yoga. I encourage my students to practice Yoga with the sound of their own breathing and listening to their bodies, how it opens, contracts, releases and how suddenly with an adjustment they can enter the yoga posture and the experience is transformed. Also, I encourage them to feel the body, aligning it, inviting gently to go a little farther, support it, and explore the yoga posture (Asana) to see what is beyond.
1 p.m. Procrastination workshop: Why we avoid doing what we know will be good for us Mika Maniwa, Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication

Do you procrastinate – do you avoid doing what you know you “should” do? Do you judge yourself as being “lazy”? Do you feel frustrated when you can’t concentrate on the task in front of you? Is it hard to feel compassion for the part of you that may be frozen in terror, alone with the overwhelm?

We will learn about the power of empathy and kindness to change our brains. We hope to better understand our behaviours that don’t always make sense.

1:30 p.m. Sound healing Theda Phoenix, VCC Alumna In this session, participants will be invited to recline comfortably, close their eyes and receive the calming effects of guided sound healing music to support nervous system regulation. We will enter a state of slowing down, connecting to the breath, body and our intentions as the sounds and frequencies of Crystal Singing Bowls and the natural human voice creates a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system, intended to lead to an experience of well being, renewal, relaxation, and peace.
2 p.m. Closing Alper Caglayan, VCC Counsellor

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to again be held Friday, September 30, 2022

Vancouver Community College (VCC) will once again honour and acknowledge the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30, 2022. All campuses will be closed on that day.

The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation honours the lost children and survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.

The creation of this federal statutory holiday was through legislative amendments made by Parliament. On June 3, 2021, Bill C-5, An Act to amend the Bills of Exchange Act, the Interpretation Act and the Canada Labour Code (National Day for Truth and Reconciliation) received Royal Assent.

The provincial government of B.C. has advised all provincial public sector employers to plan for September 30, 2022, to again be observed as a day to celebrate the diverse cultures, resilience and contributions of Indigenous Peoples as well as to commemorate the history and legacy of the residential school system.

For those in the VCC community planning for the fall, we hope this information will help inform your calendars. At this time, it is unknown what day, or how, the National day for Truth and Reconciliation will be held in 2023. Any updated info will be shared.

All VCC employees are encouraged to learn more about the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation via the provincial and federal websites.

The team will be acting as consultants for the fashion show segment, and will be on-site for workshops and the show. VCC Fashion will also be making masks for the women involved.

VIRTUAL GALA: Includes comedy, a fashion show, musical performances, a silent auction, and much more!

HOST: Savannah Erasmus, “a “Vintage” comedian based in Vancouver, BC. She was raised in Kikino Metis Settlement and Cold Lake First Nation, in Treaty 6 Territory (Northern Alberta). Her Indigenous perspective and “fashion-focused” lens create a fresh and unique stand-up persona that audiences adore. “

SPECIAL GUESTS: Laydy Jams & Maia

FUNDRAISING GOAL: The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre is recording a 50% increase in the number of women accessing services since provincial health and safety restrictions were relaxed on July 1, 2021. Oftentimes, a hot, nutritious meal is a gateway for the community’s most vulnerable women to a continuum of holistic supports to improve her situation. DEWC’s meals program is still mostly funded by individual donations, and their goal is to fundraise over $120,000 to support DEWC’s expanding meals program.

What you need to know for VCC's annual earthquake drill


VCC will participate in the Great ShakeOut earthquake drill on Thursday, Oct. 15 at 10:15 a.m.

  • During the drill, audio announcements will be broadcast instructing anyone on campus to "drop, cover, and hold on."
  • Upon completion of the earthquake drill, building alarms will be activated and VCC will practice a full campus evacuation (with physical distancing due to COVID-19).

Earthquake preparedness at home

More than 3,000 earthquakes occur in British Columbia each year. Most are too small to be felt, but the risk of one big enough to cause significant damage is very real. Participating in the Great ShakeOut is an effective way to better understand B.C.’s earthquake risk and how to prepare.

Orange Shirt Day: Every Child Matters

Add it to your calendar

Date Day Time Room Location
September 30, 2019 Monday 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM

 

Honouring families and communities impacted by the residential school system


On September 30, VCC will observe Orange Shirt Day. We encourage everyone to wear an orange shirt in the spirit of reconciliation and to show their support of families and communities impacted by the residential school system. 

 

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, B.C., in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. 

The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations.

Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools, and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

2019 Chefs Table Sam Fabbro

Join us on August 14 for a one-night-only special guest chef edition of VCC's popular Chef's Table featuring Executive Chef Sam Fabbro.

The Chef’s Table Guest Chef Series was initiated in November 2017 to showcase VCC alumni, our culinary arts and hospitality programs, and to raise funds for future equipment needs and student bursaries and scholarships.

As a child, Chef Sam Fabbro began cooking with his grandmother, deciding early on that culinary arts would be his life's path. While attending LA Matheson Secondary School, Sam dedicated a year to culinary training under the instruction of Chef O while also working at Cobre Restaurant.

After attending VCC, Sam went on to work at Restaurant 62, Raincity Grill, CinCin, and Cocktails & Canapés. Rising from Sous Chef to Executive Chef at the award-winning El Santo, Sam recently opened the New Westminster plant-based eatery, Amaranthus, with El Santo owner, Alejandro Diaz.

2018 Chefs Table Danvee Kwok 800

Join VCC alumnus Danvee Kwok for an evening of spectacular fare. Danvee's culinary career began with the Glowbal Restaurant Group restaurants, where she moved quickly from line cook to sous chef. She then took the opportunity to be part of the opening team of The Flying Pig Yaletown and Gastown. Recently Danvee has joined the culinary teams as sous chef at Torafuku and Royal Dinette. She loves cooking foods that are nostalgic to her, such as flavours reminiscent of growing up in Hong Kong. Or, her first trip to Japan with family, where the aromas of dashi and grilled fish filled the hallway every morning. These are a few things that contributed to her style of cooking and passion for food.

Your ticket includes a five-course, fixed menu with optional wine pairings.

The Chef’s Table Guest Chef Series was initiated in November 2017 as a means to showcase VCC alumni and the culinary arts and hospitality programs, and to raise funds for the VCC Foundation. All net proceeds from the event go towards culinary equipment funds, bursaries and scholarships for future VCC students.

This staged reading does not disappoint! Proving that great entertainment never goes out of style, the presentation of LoveLoss and What I Wore by award-winning screenwriters and authors Nora and Delia Ephron (based on the book by Ilene Beckerman) comes to Presentation House Theatre  stage, for two  evenings only.
Like a long heart-to-heart with your best friend, this intimate and engaging collection of stories meanders from musings over wedding-day attire to a rant about loathing a purse and everything in between. Odes to first bras, cowboy boots, and outfits that made our mothers cringe, LoveLoss and What I Wore evokes funny memories and poignant stories about tyrannical dressing rooms, painful heels, comfy Birkenstocks and having to choose between the two!
 
Love, Loss, and What I wore is a fundraiser  supporting of Vancouver Community College’s (VCC) Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH), Visually Impaired (VIP), ASL and Deaf Studies, and Interpreting Services (IS) departments. Funds raised from the ticket sales of this performance, and the rummage sale following the performance will go directly towards scholarships for Deaf, hard of hearing, and visually impaired students.

VCC alumnus Jefferson Bueno will be creating an evening of deliciousness. You might recognize Jefferson as the culinary face of VCC's "Make Your Mark" campaign or from the video, The Master & the Prodigy that featured Jefferson and his instructor, Chef Ysabel Sukic.

Jefferson currently resides in Victoria, B.C. working as a chef catering for over 200 people at one of the provinces largest childcare centres. He devotes his spare time to two of his favourite hobbies - foraging local wild food, and the science behind cooking such as molecular gastronomy.

"I believe that working directly with kids and giving them the opportunity to try a variety of different ingredients at an early stage will promote a healthy lifestyle and food culture for them as they grow to appreciate food." - Jefferson Bueno

The Chef’s Table Guest Chef Series was initiated in November 2017 to showcase VCC alumni, our culinary arts and hospitality programs, and to raise funds for future equipment needs and student bursaries and scholarships.

Herstory-in-focus-2018-600


The Downtown Eastside Women's Centre (DEWC) presents the third annual HERSTORY IN FOCUS, hosted at the Vancouver Art Gallery. HERSTORY raises support and awareness for the work of the Centre, celebrating the strength and resilience of women in our community. As the night's highlight, women of the Centre perform a live fashion show as an expression of style and empowerment.


This year, the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre commemorates our 40 year anniversary, with a special focus on our meal program, and its long-term support sustaining and nourishing women from the Centre's inception. The theme this year is 'inner essence: highlighting the inner power and unique personalities of women.'

HERSTORY aims to raise $50,000 for the drop-in centre and meal program, providing over 500 meals daily to women. As the sole low-barrier drop-in space in the Downtown Eastside, DEWC provides invaluable sanctuary to women in a highly marginalized community, with the meal program serving as the entry point to the Centre and a continuum of care. 

Many VCC departments (including fashion, hair design, makeup, and graphic design) are volunteering their time to support this event. Join us at HERSTORY IN FOCUS in supporting the work of the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre and elevating women's voices, stories, and strength.

Nature, solitude, and contemplation are the focus of this recital. From the burnished lake of Argento’s To Be Sung Upon the Waterto the azure sky of Meyerbeer’s Hirtenlied, to the towering cliffs of Schubert’s beloved Shepherd on the Rock, the songs celebrate the freedom and inspiration of the natural world. Jeff Younger’s new piece, exploring the theme of erosion, evokes the fragile and transitory nature of our earth's riches.

It also provides an opportunity for students to share their work in an evening concert setting open to the public.
