ROUNDHOUSE VISION & MISSION

n September 1996, the Roundhouse Advisory Committee, composed of neighbourhood representatives, heritage supporters, members of the arts community and Park Board staff, undertook a retreat to work through a vision for the Roundhouse. The following is the result of those discussions: The overall mission is to celebrate diversity... of people, values, ideas and activities. This mission is made up of three key elements:

THE ROUNDHOUSE AS PROJECT

All of us who work or play or socialize at the Roundhouse will be active participants in an evolving Roundhouse Community project to find new and creative ways to integrate the arts, community, culture and sports. Arts & Recreation Centre THE ROUNDHOUSE AS OASIS 181 Roundhouse Mews The Roundhouse is located in the centre of one of the largest urban experiments in history, transVancouver, BC V6Z 2W3 forming a few hundred acres of mostly vacant lots into one of North America’s densest and most Tel: 604-713-1800 diverse urban sites. The Roundhouse will be an oasis in the centre of this dynamic mix, enabling Fax: 604-713-1813 people to use their creativity and energy (at whatever level) to rejuvenate themselves and to be info@roundhouse.ca better equipped to face a blizzard of challenges and opportunities around them. www.roundhouse.ca

THE ROUNDHOUSE AS CONNECTION

The Roundhouse exists to identify and serve the needs of widely divergent communities. To do this the Roundhouse must reach out to the places and situations where those communities feel comfortable. These relationships will grow into Roundhouse programs through sponsorships, partnerships, and our own productions.

See page 17 for details. • Award-winning designer and artist Katherine Soucie will work collaboratively with community members in a residency focused on material activism and the transformation of waste textiles through deconstruction, visible mending, and structural re-imagining. See page 6, 41 for details. With another full season ahead of us, a big thank you to our dedicated team of staff and volunteers for their hard work and we look forward to seeing you all soon!

IN TRIBUTE: MICHAEL NOON 20 June, 1937 - 22 January, 2019 “Order is better than chaos, creation better than destruction.” - Kenneth Clark Michael Noon, a beloved member of the Roundhouse Society’s Board from December 2008 until January 2013, and then of the Society’s Advisory Council until 2015, passed away peacefully early in 2019. He was kept company by close friends, who were remarkable in their love and care of him, and were by his side at the end. We, at the Roundhouse, feel the loss of this lovely man who was such a bright light in the Vancouver arts community. In 1966, Michael arrived in Toronto, Canada from Manchester, England where he trained as an architect with a special interest in theatre design. He spent many years in Ontario working with post-secondary institutions, then as the Executive Director, Cultural Affairs for the Ontario government, and finally General Manager for the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts. He was invited to Vancouver, becoming the founding Managing Director for the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (1995-2002). Significantly involved in all stages of the facility’s architectural design, he then went on to establish its world-renowned programming. He joyfully explored and supported his new West Coast community, serving on many arts and culture boards and organizations across the city. Upon starting with the Roundhouse Board, Michael immediately, and enthusiastically, joined a variety of committees: finance, programming, governance, and recruitment, often acting as Secretary when needed. Eventually, he joined the Executive as 1st Vice President in January 2012, and then spent a few months as President before stepping down due to his many other commitments. With his exceptional skills as an architect and project manager, and his incomparable programming expertise, he was a passionate promotor of the Roundhouse’s mission to provide an inclusive, educational, and welcoming space for all. A great believer in empowering people to achieve their very best, and with an intuitive eye for recognizing talent and drive, he purposely fostered connections, allowing the people around him to fulfill their untapped potential. Michael had a knack for names and always greeted Roundhouse staff by name, falling easily into conversation about upcoming and past events. He was interested in how people were connecting to the Centre—how their experience could be improved. He loved the sense of community, the innovative programming, the breadth of activities available, and readily supported the risks that Roundhouse programmers take. He was a tireless proponent for the arts at the Roundhouse and a champion of the many arts programs and events. Close friend, Wendy Soobis, and former Board member, remembers him for his sharpest of minds, his insatiable curiosity, his notable and contagious laugh, and his extraordinary generosity and kindness. She also recalls his quirky Gemini predilection for symmetry—he preferred objects as sets of two, particularly lamps. When it came time to work on the contentious Joint Operating Agreement with the Vancouver Park Board, Michael wrote a persuasive letter, which was instrumental in opening up communications and starting the negotiations in good faith, shepherding the initial process. His experience in government, coupled with his diplomacy and communication skills, was the foundation for the Roundhouse’s leadership in the discussions. Fellow Advisory Council member and Roundhouse Story Project Chair, Ingrid Alderson, writes: One role Michael accepted was that of the Board’s representative on the Roundhouse Story Project committee. The goal of the project was to create digital vignettes, describing the Roundhouse as a community hub—from its industrial railway roots to its current role as a unique community arts and recreation centre, and a leader in community cultural development. Michael was a very supportive advocate, and the project continued to receive generous funding from the Board until the four-video series was completed in 2013. Kathleen Laverty, Michael’s dear friend and fellow Board member, remembers this quotation displayed in Michael’s welcoming home. To her, the closing words from Kenneth Clark's final film of the Civilisation series encapsulate the way he chose to live his rich life. "I believe that order is better than chaos, creation better than destruction. I prefer gentleness to violence, forgiveness to vendetta. On the whole, I think that knowledge is preferable to ignorance, and I am sure that human sympathy is more valuable than ideology. I believe that, in spite of the recent triumphs of science, men haven't changed much in the last 2,000 years; and in consequence we must still try to learn from history. History is ourselves...and I think we should remember that we are part of a great whole, which for convenience we call nature. All living things are our brothers and sisters. Above all, I believe in the God-given genius of certain individuals, and I value a society that makes their existence possible." With contributions from Wendy Soobis, Kathleen Laverty, Ingrid Alderson, Percy Nacario, Marie Lopes, and Hanne Lene Dalgleish.


RESIDENCIES

WHAT IS A ROUNDHOUSE ARTIST IN RESIDENCE?

Participate in a free Artists’ Residency and collaborate with professional artists on projects that build creative community. The Artists in Residence program is an important part of our commitment to community cultural development: promoting diversity, interdisciplinary activity, innovation, collaboration, and involvement. This is your opportunity to create original theatre, dance, music, and visual art with some of Vancouver’s most renowned artists.

(A)MEND WITH ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE KATHERINE SOUCIE

Explore design, craft, and material activism with the (a)Mend project. Local artist and designer Katherine Soucie will introduce the project to participants through pop-up events at the Roundhouse in the spring and will run a free explorative workshop series in the summer. These activities will build to the co-creation of a new sculptural work relating to concepts, techniques, and materials explored, and will be exhibited at the Roundhouse. See page 41 for registration details. Katherine is an artist and designer who transforms textile industry waste into new textiles, clothing, and sculptural forms. She studied Fashion Design in Toronto, Canada before furthering her studies in Textiles and Visual Art in Vancouver. Since 2003, her experimentation with textile industry waste, specifically hosiery, has resulted in an extensive body of work for which she has received numerous scholarships, grants, and awards. Labour, history, craft, and technology continue to inform her research and her ongoing transformation of textile waste as a material resource. Katherine Soucie.

INTRODUCING ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE SARAH RONALD

Artist Sarah Ronald will engage community members to explore personal symbolism to create work that is rooted in storytelling and personal history. Growing up in Summerland BC, Sarah received her Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Okanagan University in Kelowna before moving to the West Coast. Her work is rich with personal symbolism and often inspired by wild animals seen outside of her studio window, meandering through her suburban neighbourhood, or making news headlines. She has diverse experience working with the public throughout the Lower Mainland and is excited to explore art-making with the Roundhouse community. Watch for her at the Roundhouse throughout the spring and summer and register for a free visual art exploration session for adults in the fall. More info at www.sarahronald.com/roundhouse-air or follow her explorations on Instagram @sarahronaldair.

DANCE

Community-engaged dance residencies at Vancouver Park Board facilities bring together people of all ages, abilities, and cultural backgrounds to explore, create, and perform dance with professional dance artists. Dance residencies from across the city – including the Roundhouse – will come together to perform at LINK Dance on May 30. See page 16 for details. Sarah Ronald.

YOUTH THEATRE

Some Assembly’s new play Rewire is a bold must-see. This multi-media theatre production inspires positive change when stress has negative impacts such as anxiety and social isolation. In a dynamic interchange on the night of a lunar eclipse and a video game event, local youth bravely face root causes of stress including poverty, grief, and sexual assault. Rewire highlights integrity, positive action, and community support. Free performances take place May 1-4, 2019 in the Roundhouse Performance Centre as part of National Youth Arts Week and BC Youth Week. A facilitated talkback session follows each performance. See page 11 for details.

MOTHERS AND MOTHERLANDS AND WORLD LISTENING DAY

Artists Amal Rana and George Rahi commence investigations into matrilineal histories and locating sound for 2019. The public is welcome to join in on introductory projects Mothers and Motherlands and World Listening Day. See pages 14 and 18 for details.

GREAT HALL GALLERY – ALL THE TREES HOLLY SCHMIDT

Jul-Aug Great Hall Gallery INFO www.beatapath.ca All the Trees encouraged visitors to take a closer look at the trees around the West Point Grey Community Centre and Jericho Park and to communicate with those trees. This was commemorated with a series of 24 posters showcasing some of the emails and responses that were sent. Thirty trees were tagged with an ID Number, an email address and an invitation to send a personal message to the tree. Artist in residence, Holly Schmidt and a curated group including historian John Atkin, horticulturalist Egan Davis, poet Rahat Kurd, and indigenous herbalist Lori Snyder responded to the emails on behalf of the trees. All the Trees is an artist project by Holly Schmidt, Vancouver Park Board Artist in Community at West Point Grey Community Centre. All the Trees was made possible with the support of the Artist in Communities program through the Vancouver Park Board and West Point Grey Community Centre, and the Jericho Stewardship Group. This legacy poster project and exhibition are supported by the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre. #6416 Redwood Sequoia sempervirens For information www.roundhouse.ca 604.713.1800 ext 1
