Join New Westminster-based critically acclaimed poet, Geoffrey Nilson, and astrophysicist and Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medalist, Jaymie Matthews, for a unique evening event. Scheduled during the annual appearance of the Perseid meteor shower, our guest speakers will lead you on a poetic, galactic journey, examining the themes and works of the New Media gallery exhibition space_. Transform your evening with an extra-terrestrial discussion, while considering your bodily experience here on Earth. After the presentations, follow us to Westminster Pier Park where you can gaze up at the night sky, and potentially get a glimpse of this summer’s mesmerizing meteoric event. All ages welcome, bring your own blanket. Hot beverages will be served.
