PULSE ZINE Art on the fly in the SUB

Hello beautiful people, it is a gorgeous day today and it is two weeks until the PULSE ZINE submission deadline (February 28th 2015)

I have been receiving many lovely recipes and writing pieces, but I don’t want anyone to miss the deadline.

So today in the SUB I will be tabling with info about the referendum (including sign up sheets for our info sessions) as well as PULSE Zine submissions.
Come pull up a chair to the table and do a sketch write a poem or just talk and then all the creations from today and friday will have their own place in the Book!

Also this Friday there will also be a Bake sale for PULSE happening at the table! So feel free to bake for the table and I will be able to reimburse you.

Lets make this week about creativity and self expression.

PULSE 2015 is looking for your art, poetry, recipes and stories!

The Students of Colour Collective presents Pulse Zine 2015 as a COOK BOOK For Your Soul.

We are looking for submissions of recipes, along with a short write up of why you choose this recipe and it’s significance in your life, family, and roots. We want to give space for your racialized experiences/identity as a person of colour or Indigenous person, and gather/resist through our food.

*We recognize that not all folks who identify as people of colour are “visible” and that all racialized experiences are complicated. We welcome submissions that highlight this reality. We are seeking to create a space and community where folks with racialized experiences are recognized, honored, and privileged. As such, we would love to hear a variety of voices and encourage all folks who identify as people of colour and/or Indigenous people, including all identities and backgrounds of sexuality, gender, ability, health and identities and backgrounds of sexuality, gender, and socioeconomic locations to submit.*

Please email submissions to pulse.socc@gmail.com

Or mail to

Vivek Shraya Book Launch and QT2IPOC Showcase!

Please join us! All are welcome to this FREE event, less than a week away!

September 23rd, 7pm, at the Ambrosia Center (on the Homelands of the Lkwungen and WSANEC Peoples, 638 Fisgard St) the UVic Pride, UVSS Students of Colour Collective (SOCC), the anti.violence.project, and the Positive Space Network (PSN), are happy to bring you VIVEK SHRAYA and a QT2IPOC (queer, trans, two-sprit Indigenous and people of colour) showcase!

This free event is part of Vivek’s book tour to launch his new book, She of the Mountains, a beautifully rendered illustrated novel that weaves a passionate, contemporary love story with a re-imagining of Hindu mythology. Both narratives explore the complex ways that we are formed and transformed by love, and show how the process of learning to love and be loved by another can ultimately—and sometimes painfully—bring us back to our selves. http://vivekshraya.com/books/she-of-the-mountains

Vivek is a a Toronto-based artist working in the media of music, performance, literature and film as well as the winner of the the We are Listening International Singer/Songwriter Award and a two-time Lambda Literary Award finalist. More about Vivek here: http://vivekshraya.com/about

There is also a workshop, facilitated by Vivek, starting at 5pm at the Ambrosia Center. More details can be found here. Limited space is left. This workshop is reserved for Queer, Trans, Two-Spirit Indigenous and People of Colour.

The space is wheel-chair accessible – double doors into the center – double doors into the event room, high ceilings. Note that there are fluorescent lighting. Snacks and non-alcoholic drinks available.

Amazing, Right!?

If you have any questions, please feel free to email qt2ipoc@gmail.com.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
