VASA and AHSA host a BBQ Mixer

Location: In front of Lasserre, 6333 Memorial Road, UBC

Free BBQ outside of Lasserre!

We are thrilled to announce the first collaborated event of the 2009-2010 year between the Art History Students’ Association and the Visual Arts Students’ Association.

On Thursday, October 8th from 11:30 to 2:00pm, we will be holding a free BBQ outside of Lasserre.  If you are taking classes in the department, we would love to have you come out, get some food and spend some time getting to know your peers (especially the cool ones running the grill)!  This will also be the first opportunity to purchase your membership to either the Art History Students’ Association or the Visual Arts Students’ Association.  We will be selling the club memberships at a cost of $5 per person.  Your purchase to either club will provide access to special benefits at events run by either club throughout the school year, including a piece of cake at the BBQ.  Both clubs are entirely student run and fundraised.  We depend on your support for our existence and hope that you can give us a hand in making the next great event possible.

Come by the BBQ to ask questions about the clubs and also to sign and be part of a special petition against the current arts funding cuts by the BC Liberals (a cut that represents over 80% of the previous arts funding budget). These cuts affect us all, let’s try and gather as many signatures as possible!
VASA and AHSA are coming together in many ways this year and our events will provide an opportunity for the student arts community to have their voice heard.
