Photo gallery: 13 vibrant photos of October at MacEwan

November 3, 2020 | Campus Life, Arts & Culture

As October comes to a close, take a look back at the volunteers, voices and vibrant new spaces that made up the month.

MacEwan hosted its first-ever Folk It Up: A Fall Concert Series on October 14. Eight vocal students from the Bachelor of Music in Jazz and Contemporary Popular Music spent the first half of this term songwriting, marketing and arranging the logistics of the concert in order to perform their original music.
Like everyone on campus, the Bachelor of Communication Studies students are implementing physical distancing measures — in this case, learning how to navigate the new TV studio as part of BCSC 426: Video Production.

"BCSC 426 is designed to teach the students about the 'inner workings' of a television/broadcast production studio and control room," says Assistant Professor Neill Fitzpatrick. "The students need hands-on experience with the studio cameras, lights, video switcher and other equipment to effectively understand how to operate them."
No, there's not actually a tiny chef toiling away in this magical, on-demand kiosk, but you can still get a fresh pizza in three minutes flat from PizzaForno in the Robbins Health Learning Centre.
A look at a few of the featured works in It’s About Time: Dancing Black in Canada 1900 – 1970 and Now, showing in the Mitchell Art Gallery until December 5. (On the left: photographs of Michèle Moss by Mike Tan; and right: Michèle Moss’ childhood dance costume.)
Come rain or shine (or COVID-19), the MacEwan Ambassadors are ready to serve the community through volunteering.
Ambassadors wore their masks to help out with a fall yard cleanup with YESS (Youth Empowerment Support Services) in early October.
Another group of Ambassadors sorted donations and made food hampers for the Edmonton Food Bank.
As part of Sexual Violence Awareness Week (October 5 to 9), students, staff and faculty participated in Voicing Our Values, a social media effort that encouraged participants to share their values in building a world without sexual violence.
Sexual Violence Awareness Week continued with its annual Clothesline Project. Visitors to these on-campus booths were invited to decorate a shirt with a message of support for survivors.
MacEwan welcomed the School of Continuing Education to Allard Hall. Dr. Annette Trimbee, president and vice-chancellor, cut the ribbon to the new space along with "pencil-pushers" Dr. Craig Monk, provost & vice-president, Academic, and Dr. Heather McRae, dean of the School of Continuing Education.
And about that new School of Continuing Education space? Here's a peek inside the new Corporate Training area.
That's a wrap on the bees — literally. The hives on Building 5 were wrapped up for the winter to keep the bees warm and safe. The 60 pounds of honey they produced over the summer months was then packaged (above) for sale in November. The honey will be on sale at and in the mstore this week.
The MacEwan University Big Band recorded its performance for this year's Virtual Open House. To keep everyone safe, Open House has moved online with many great opportunities to help future students find the programs they're looking for. Visit to register.
