Canadian Cancer Society - Volunteer Drivers

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

THE CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY IS IN NEED OF VOLUNTEER DRIVERS! At the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), we know that cancer changes people. But we believe that a cancer diagnosis doesn’t have to define who they are. We are committed to helping people live longer and enhancing the quality of life for all of those affected by cancer. For 1 in 5 cancer patients in Ontario, transportation to treatment is just one of the many challenges they face on their road to recovery. You can help provide safe, reliable rides to life-saving appointments by becoming a driver with the Wheels of Hope Transportation program. “As a volunteer driver for the Canadian Cancer Society, I have seen firsthand that the Wheels of Hope program truly eases the burden of the patient and their families. Whether their concern is making it to different cancer-related appointments, rearranging work schedules to get their loved ones to and from these appointments, or not having the means to get back and forth - I haven't run into one patient that wasn't grateful for Wheels of Hope and the drivers.” – John Campbell, Volunteer Driver for the Canadian Cancer Society for 6 years. Join John and the volunteer drivers at the Canadian Cancer Society today! Together, we can ensure our family, friends & neighbours focus on getting well, not on how they will get to treatment. Contact the local office for more information by phone at 519-254-5116 or email theresa.blondin@ontario.cancer.ca.

Art Battle Windsor

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

October 23, 7pm at Olde Walkerville Theatre, twelve of the Windsor area’s best artists will compete across three fast-paced rounds for audience votes and a chance to enter this year’s Art Battle National Tournament. The audience will circle the competitors in each round, and choose their favourite paintings to move forward. After the Final Round, only one Champion will remain and audience members can take home their favourite painting by bidding in our silent auction!  These competitors are a mix of veteran professional artists and emerging talents who want to share their process and talent with a new audience. Featured painters include Gulnaz Turdalieva, who loves “the idea of creating under time restrictions,” as well as Jeff Denomme, who is looking forward to sharing his “fun, character driven art [that] balances cute and scary” with the Art Battle community. Art Battle invites culture enthusiasts, painters, art collectors, art party lovers, and the entire Windsor community to join the experience and vote for the next Art Battle Champion! A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Cardiac Wellness program at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare. This program aids individuals who have suffered a cardiac incident in rehabilitation and provides them with the knowledge to improve their dietary and physical activity levels in order to live with improved health and wellness.  This six month program focuses on individuals working together with healthcare professionals to develop a plan of action that best fits each patients’ personal needs. The inter-professional team may include supervisory Physicians, Registered Kinesiologists, Cardiac Rehab Specialists, Registered Dietitians, Nurse Practitioners, and Social Workers. Art Battle® has been sharing live painting competitions and incredible artistic performances with audiences since 2001. Today, across the country and around the globe, we celebrate live talent by turning a blank canvas into a work of art. Windsor is one of more than 100 cities on 6 continents with tens of thousands of competitors from Brooklyn to Bangladesh, São Paulo to San Francisco, and many more.  Art Battle Windsor welcomes local media and notables to join us on the night of the competition, and to share the stories of this diverse group of talented creators. Anyone interested in applying to be a special voting delegate should email hello@artbattle.com

Art Gallery Windsor - Inuit Art

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

The AGW is thrilled to present its fall exhibition program including the feature exhibition SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut touring to Windsor from The Rooms, Newfoundland. This ground-breaking exhibition is on its final stop in Windsor and AGW is the only Ontario venue. From the AGW collection is also Northern Narratives: Cape Dorset Prints, Recent Acquisitions and the 60th Anniversary: West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative Cape Dorset/Kinngait WBEC Studios. “It has been some time since the AGW has presented an in-depth look at Inuit art” notes AGW Executive Director, Catharine Mastin. “This exciting program is one of the many ways that the Gallery continues to recognize the rich artistic expressions within Indigenous communities. In the feature exhibition, visitors can expect to discover a world virtually unknown to them. In collection exhibitions visitors can expect find some well-known art works and many new ones.” SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut (pronounced saw-KEE-eye-ook), curated by Dr. Heather Igloliorte is the first major exhibition on the art of the Labrador Inuit. SakKijâjuk — meaning “to be visible” in the Nunatsiavut dialect of Inuktitut — provides an opportunity for visitors, collectors, art historians, and art aficionados from the South and the North to come into intimate contact with the distinctive, innovative and always breath-taking work of the contemporary Inuit artists and craftspeople of Nunatsiavut. Nunatsiavut, the Inuit region of Canada that achieved self-government in 2005, produces art that is distinct within the world of Canadian and circumpolar Inuit art. The world's most southerly population of Inuit, the coastal people of Nunatsiavut have always lived both above and below the tree line, and Inuit artists and craftspeople from Nunatsiavut have had access to a diverse range of Arctic and Subarctic flora and fauna, from which they have produced a stunningly diverse range of work. Artists from the territory have traditionally used stone and wood for carving; fur, hide, and sealskin for wearable art; and saltwater seagrass for basketry, as well as wool, metal, cloth, beads, and paper. In recent decades, they have produced work in a variety of contemporary art media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, video, and ceramics, while also working with traditional materials in new and unexpected ways. Dr. Heather Igloliorte is an Assistant Professor of Aboriginal art history at Concordia University in Montreal. Her research interests centre on Inuit and other Native North American visual and material culture, circumpolar art studies, performance and media art, the global exhibition of Indigenous arts and culture, and issues of colonization, sovereignty, resistance and resilience. Northern Narratives: Cape Dorset Prints drawn from the AGW collection includes print images from 17 Inuit artists published by the Kinngait Studios Cape Dorset during the late 1950s and into the 1970s. This project focusses on stories of traditional Inuit life exploring themes of hunting, travel, wildlife and the spiritual power of Canada’s North. Recent Acquisitions features a selection of historical, modern and contemporary art showcasing key areas in which the collection has been developed. Collecting areas include art by artists of Anishnaabe and Inuit ancestry, and art from the Windsor-Essex region and western Canada. The exhibition, 60th Anniversary: West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative Cape Dorset/Kinngait WBEC Studios includes prints and a selection of catalogues documenting the Annual Graphics Collections produced since 1959 by the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative’s Kinngait studio in Cape Dorset. The West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative was established in 1959 in Cape Dorset. The first annual Cape Dorset print collection was released the same year, containing images produced by Inuit artists in the region. SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut is presented in Windsor with the support of Rochelle & Bill Tepperman. Fridays Live! is the official launch for all fall/winter exhibitions on Friday, October 18, 2019 from 7:00–10:00pm. The event is FREE for AGW members and $15.00 for non-members. For more information on the opening weekend events, visit www.agw.ca.

Free Personal Support Worker Training

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Through a creative and collaborative effort, three organizations are coming together to offer free personal support worker certificate training for qualified students to meet the growing demand for Personal Support Workers (PSWs) in the field. PSWs are essential in helping patients remain at home, assisting in delivering home and community care, and providing services in long-term care and retirement homes. The growing demand for PSW care is felt in all communities across the Erie St. Clair LHIN region, and this free program is a way for students to access a PSW certificate program at no cost to them. SE Career College of Health and Personal Support Worker (PSW) programs are registered and approved by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Not only is the program free to students, they will also be paid to attend the course for the first four weeks. For those students who may not want to take the full PSW course, they can graduate as a Home Support Worker (HSW) in four weeks. The location for the course does vary and will move throughout the LHIN region. The next free program is October 21, 2019 in Leamington and includes:
  • Four weeks of free Home Support Worker (HSW) training: Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Five months of free Personal Support Worker (PSW) training: Monday – Friday 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
People interested in the PSW or HSW program can contact any of the three employers to access the free program:
  • Assisted Living Southwestern Ontario – Brooke Spoors 519-969-8188 ext. 247

October 23, 7pm at Olde Walkerville Theatre, twelve of the Windsor area’s best artists will compete across three fast-paced rounds for audience votes and a chance to enter this year’s Art Battle National Tournament. The audience will circle the competitors in each round, and choose their favourite paintings to move forward. After the Final Round, only one Champion will remain and audience members can take home their favourite painting by bidding in our silent auction!  These competitors are a mix of veteran professional artists and emerging talents who want to share their process and talent with a new audience. Featured painters include Gulnaz Turdalieva, who loves “the idea of creating under time restrictions,” as well as Jeff Denomme, who is looking forward to sharing his “fun, character driven art [that] balances cute and scary” with the Art Battle community. Art Battle invites culture enthusiasts, painters, art collectors, art party lovers, and the entire Windsor community to join the experience and vote for the next Art Battle Champion! A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Cardiac Wellness program at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare. This program aids individuals who have suffered a cardiac incident in rehabilitation and provides them with the knowledge to improve their dietary and physical activity levels in order to live with improved health and wellness.  This six month program focuses on individuals working together with healthcare professionals to develop a plan of action that best fits each patients’ personal needs. The inter-professional team may include supervisory Physicians, Registered Kinesiologists, Cardiac Rehab Specialists, Registered Dietitians, Nurse Practitioners, and Social Workers. Art Battle® has been sharing live painting competitions and incredible artistic performances with audiences since 2001. Today, across the country and around the globe, we celebrate live talent by turning a blank canvas into a work of art. Windsor is one of more than 100 cities on 6 continents with tens of thousands of competitors from Brooklyn to Bangladesh, São Paulo to San Francisco, and many more.  Art Battle Windsor welcomes local media and notables to join us on the night of the competition, and to share the stories of this diverse group of talented creators. Anyone interested in applying to be a special voting delegate should email hello@artbattle.com

Free Personal Support Worker Training

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Through a creative and collaborative effort, three organizations are coming together to offer free personal support worker certificate training for qualified students to meet the growing demand for Personal Support Workers (PSWs) in the field. PSWs are essential in helping patients remain at home, assisting in delivering home and community care, and providing services in long-term care and retirement homes. The growing demand for PSW care is felt in all communities across the Erie St. Clair LHIN region, and this free program is a way for students to access a PSW certificate program at no cost to them. SE Career College of Health and Personal Support Worker (PSW) programs are registered and approved by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Not only is the program free to students, they will also be paid to attend the course for the first four weeks. For those students who may not want to take the full PSW course, they can graduate as a Home Support Worker (HSW) in four weeks. The location for the course does vary and will move throughout the LHIN region. The next free program is October 21, 2019 in Leamington and includes:
  • Four weeks of free Home Support Worker (HSW) training: Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Five months of free Personal Support Worker (PSW) training: Monday – Friday 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
People interested in the PSW or HSW program can contact any of the three employers to access the free program:
  • Assisted Living Southwestern Ontario – Brooke Spoors 519-969-8188 ext. 247
  • Bayshore Home Care Solutions – Heather Rezaian 1-888-227-5013 ext. 33309

Art Gallery Windsor - Inuit Art

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

The AGW is thrilled to present its fall exhibition program including the feature exhibition SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut touring to Windsor from The Rooms, Newfoundland. This ground-breaking exhibition is on its final stop in Windsor and AGW is the only Ontario venue. From the AGW collection is also Northern Narratives: Cape Dorset Prints, Recent Acquisitions and the 60th Anniversary: West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative Cape Dorset/Kinngait WBEC Studios. “It has been some time since the AGW has presented an in-depth look at Inuit art” notes AGW Executive Director, Catharine Mastin. “This exciting program is one of the many ways that the Gallery continues to recognize the rich artistic expressions within Indigenous communities. In the feature exhibition, visitors can expect to discover a world virtually unknown to them. In collection exhibitions visitors can expect find some well-known art works and many new ones.” SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut (pronounced saw-KEE-eye-ook), curated by Dr. Heather Igloliorte is the first major exhibition on the art of the Labrador Inuit. SakKijâjuk — meaning “to be visible” in the Nunatsiavut dialect of Inuktitut — provides an opportunity for visitors, collectors, art historians, and art aficionados from the South and the North to come into intimate contact with the distinctive, innovative and always breath-taking work of the contemporary Inuit artists and craftspeople of Nunatsiavut. Nunatsiavut, the Inuit region of Canada that achieved self-government in 2005, produces art that is distinct within the world of Canadian and circumpolar Inuit art. The world's most southerly population of Inuit, the coastal people of Nunatsiavut have always lived both above and below the tree line, and Inuit artists and craftspeople from Nunatsiavut have had access to a diverse range of Arctic and Subarctic flora and fauna, from which they have produced a stunningly diverse range of work. Artists from the territory have traditionally used stone and wood for carving; fur, hide, and sealskin for wearable art; and saltwater seagrass for basketry, as well as wool, metal, cloth, beads, and paper. In recent decades, they have produced work in a variety of contemporary art media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, video, and ceramics, while also working with traditional materials in new and unexpected ways. Dr. Heather Igloliorte is an Assistant Professor of Aboriginal art history at Concordia University in Montreal. Her research interests centre on Inuit and other Native North American visual and material culture, circumpolar art studies, performance and media art, the global exhibition of Indigenous arts and culture, and issues of colonization, sovereignty, resistance and resilience. Northern Narratives: Cape Dorset Prints drawn from the AGW collection includes print images from 17 Inuit artists published by the Kinngait Studios Cape Dorset during the late 1950s and into the 1970s. This project focusses on stories of traditional Inuit life exploring themes of hunting, travel, wildlife and the spiritual power of Canada’s North. Recent Acquisitions features a selection of historical, modern and contemporary art showcasing key areas in which the collection has been developed. Collecting areas include art by artists of Anishnaabe and Inuit ancestry, and art from the Windsor-Essex region and western Canada. The exhibition, 60th Anniversary: West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative Cape Dorset/Kinngait WBEC Studios includes prints and a selection of catalogues documenting the Annual Graphics Collections produced since 1959 by the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative’s Kinngait studio in Cape Dorset. The West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative was established in 1959 in Cape Dorset. The first annual Cape Dorset print collection was released the same year, containing images produced by Inuit artists in the region. SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut is presented in Windsor with the support of Rochelle & Bill Tepperman. Fridays Live! is the official launch for all fall/winter exhibitions on Friday, October 18, 2019 from 7:00–10:00pm. The event is FREE for AGW members and $15.00 for non-members.

Tecumseh Seeking Snow & Leaf Angels

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

The Town of Tecumseh is seeking volunteers for the 2019-2020 Snow and Leaf Angels Program, commencing October 31, 2019, through to March 31, 2020. “Our volunteers are the backbone of many of our programs in Tecumseh,” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “The Snow and Leaf Angels are truly angels to many residents in the community and we are so grateful for their time and effort through some of the worst weather, helping those in need.” Snow and Leaf Angels are matched with seniors and persons with physical disabilities living in the Town to clear snow and leaves from Town sidewalks and driveway entrances for those in need of assistance. Last year the eleven volunteers in the program, who were able to support over 20 residents in Town, were recognized at the annual Volunteer Appreciation dinner. Angels are provided with toques, and shovels, where necessary, and are identified to the residents they support. The Program is a great way for families to volunteer together, or for high school students to complete their 40 hours of community service. To learn more about the Program and how to volunteer, visit the Town’s website or contact the Tecumseh Town Hall. Seniors (those ages 65 or older) and persons with physical disabilities can also contact the Town to apply for assistance. Information on this and all Town news and events is available at www.tecumseh.ca, www.tecumsehapp.ca, Twitter (@TownofTecumseh), and Facebook (Town of Tecumseh).
