UBC Arts Last Lecture with Michaëlle Jean

What: The UBC Arts Undergraduate Society Presents: Arts Last Lecture with Michaëlle Jean
When: Friday, March 1, 2013 at 8:00pm
Where: Chan Centre for the Performing Arts

The Arts Last Lecture is an annual event in which a prominent Canadian is invited to deliver a “Last Lecture” to the graduating class in the Faculty of Arts. This event allows graduating students the opportunity to attend a last lecture with their peers, as well as celebrate the end of their undergraduate studies. This event hopes to inspire and empower students with the hope that their education at UBC has prepared them to be agents of positive change in Vancouver, Canada and the world. Former speakers have included George Strombolopolous, Mark Tewksbury, Douglas Coupland, and Peter Mansbridge.

The event is open to the general public with tickets on sale for $13 (student), $20 (UBC faculty and staff), and $25 (general public). If you would like to attend, I have a pair of tickets to give away to a lucky reader. Here’s how you can enter to win:
