Art on the Line

Each year UBC Okanagan’s Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies, in association with the Visual Arts Course Union, hosts a fundraiser and gala event that celebrates the work of local artists.

How are you kind?

UBCO Associate Professor John-Tyler Binfet, whose research focusses on measuring kindness in schools, children and adolescents, practices what he preaches. Binfet poses with his new rescue dog Craig.

World Kindness Day takes place on November 13. For some, it’s a time to focus on and promote the power of positivity. For others, it’s a day to celebrate the thoughtful acts performed by friends, family, neighbours and strangers.

With many of the products we use every day held together by adhesives, researchers from UBC’s Okanagan Campus and the University of Victoria hope to make everything from clothing to medical implants and residential plumbing stronger and more corrosion-resistant thanks to a newly-developed ‘hyper glue’ formula.
