Music Academies

We're very excited to have launched a new year of programming for Acadia Lifelong Learning (ALL), Acadia's initiative for adults age 50+.

We believe that education doesn't end with the traditional post-secondary levels: it should be a lifelong pursuit. The courses and events offered by ALL are meant to stimulate interest in new topics, help participants rediscover old talents, and promote creativity and self-expression.

To this end, the 2013-2014 courses cover a spectrum of topics. We invite students to dig deep into history—either literally or figuratively—with our field-oriented courses in archaeology and geological interpretation. We'll go on a world tour with courses in French speaking, African drumming, Japanese culture, the polar regions, and medieval Europe. We'll encourage students to express themselves through three visual arts courses, two writing courses, and a specific course in finding one's own creativity. We're also pleased to offer several courses in health and wellness, including "Aging Well", which will feature a series of different professionals from Annapolis Valley Health. There's much more to discover, especially in music and history. We invite you to browse the course listing or review our program calendar.

ALL also hosts free, informal weekly lectures called Brown Bag Lunches. A preliminary list of the fall's upcoming speakers is now available—ALL members will receive weekly email notices about upcoming speakers.

This Thursday's Brown Bag Lunch involves a subject close to home: the Architectural Styles of Old Wolfville. John Whidden will use images of some of our community's heritage properties to explore the effect of increasing prosperity, industrial advances and international trends on domestic architecture.

Join us this Thursday, November 27 at noon in the Fountain Learning Commons Alumni Boardroom.

Join us this Thursday in the Acadia Art Gallery as director/curator Laurie Dalton explains the primary roles of the university's gallery and prepares us to view the current travelling exhibit on Muslim prayer rugs.

This Brown Bag Lunch takes place in the Acadia Art Gallery itself in Acadia's Beveridge Arts Centre (BAC) on October 11th.  However, please note that given the nature of the exhibit, food will not be permitted inside the gallery itself.  For more information on this and future presentations, visit the Brown Bag Lunch series page.
