Programs & Events for Teens

Join us for a repeat presentation of the MOOC: The Science of Happiness from UC Berkeley.

We all want to be happy, and there are countless ideas about what happiness is and how we can get some. But not many of those ideas are based on science. That’s where this course comes in.  Join us to view lectures and discuss this course

“The Science of Happiness” is the first MOOC to teach the ground-breaking science of positive psychology, which explores the roots of a happy and meaningful life. Created by UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, the course will zero in on a fundamental finding from positive psychology: that happiness is inextricably linked to having strong social connections and contributing to something bigger than yourself—the greater good. No previous MOOC experience required.

Please register online, or, at 604-929-3727, ext. 8166.

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds -- the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school that she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what's right. Based on the novel by Angie Thomas.

Join us for an evening with Artist Mahdyar Jamshidi as he presents “I Am Here”.

“I Am Here” is a continuous collective art project that concentrates on challenging the various notions of the “center.” The project took place in three stages in Iran. In Vancouver, during the artist residency in Griffin Art Projects, Jamshidi is exploring the concept of “center” from
sociopolitical, economic, psychological, and physics perspectives, collecting data and sharing information through talks and meetings with local researchers and the public.

Learn more about this project and others at www.griffinartprojects.ca

Mahdyar Jamshidi is a photo-based artist and researcher from Tehran, Iran. He has a Bachelor of Photography, a Masters in Studio Art, and a Doctorate of Business Administration. In his work, he simplifies and decodes as a strategy to deal with his own life’s circumstances, unknowns and systems. His works reflects on critical issues related to society, humanity, science and politics. His works vary between photography, film and installation, and have been presented in Florence, Iowa, Santa Cruz, Sofia, Sydney, and Tehran.
