Perseids + Poetry

Friday August 12, 7:00



Join New Westminster-based critically acclaimed poet, Geoffrey Nilson, and Astrophysicist and Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medalist, Jaymie Matthews, for a unique evening event. Scheduled during the annual appearance of the Perseid meteor shower, we invite you to gaze up at the night sky, imagine the spatial expanse, and consider your bodily experience here on Earth as our guest speakers lead you on a galactic journey, examining the themes and works of the New Media Gallery exhibition space_. All ages welcome, bring your own blanket. Wine will be served.

New Media Gallery, in partnership with the City of New Westminster Cultural Services, presents the FRESH TALK series. FRESH TALK brings together artists, writers, poets, performers, scientists, critical thinkers and community members for interdisciplinary discussions related to the themes and concepts of New Media Gallery exhibitions. Fresh Talk is open to a broad audience and is intended to reflect the diversity of contemporary new media practices.
