Night FYP announces Winter 2019 schedule of lectures and performances

Night FYP announces Winter 2019 schedule of lectures and performances

Night FYP began in 2016-17 as a way to give students in the Foundation Year Program (FYP) an opportunity to experience directly, through a combination of performance and lecture, the “worlds” of thought and culture they study during the day in FYP. It has since expanded and is now open to community members.

Through Night FYP, artists and teachers from King’s and Dalhousie and from the broader Halifax community offer their craft in a series of events connected throughout the academic year to the curriculum of FYP (attendance for FYP students is optional but encouraged).

Most events are free. They are a celebration and extension of classroom learning, designed to enlighten and engage.

“It is our hope that Night FYP can be a forum through which the intense academic work of the Foundation Year Program can meet with the vibrant work of culture and interpretation alive on our university campus and in the artistic community of Halifax, and produce ‘a sea change into something rich and strange’ (Shakespeare, Tempest),” says Dr. Neil Robertson, director of the Foundation Year Program.

The lectures are free and open to the public, except where noted for Feb. 7, Feb. 27 and Mar. 28. Please join us at any or all of the below.

Night FYP is made possible through the generous support of a donor.
