Arts And Culture
NEW - Travel Getaways
This Group’s participants bring ideas, experiences and travel information on local and foreign destinations. Come, share your travel tips and stories, and be inspired to visit places you hadn't thought about previously. Bring your own drinks so we can relax and chat. You may even find like-minded travel buddies!
Meets: Mondays approximately every 6 weeks from 7pm to 9pm at a members’ home
An informal group open to anyone interested in poetry or curious to know more about it. Each month we will look closely at a poem written by a major (or minor) poet, exploring what is going on in the poem and what it might have to say about our lives.
Meets: First Tuesday of the month at members' homes
Art Gallery Group
Monthly visits to local art galleries, art exhibitions and art films will be organized to help you learn about the talented artists in this area and elsewhere too.
Meets: Various times and days of the month
We look forward to meeting those of you who are interested in a variety of live events. Victoria offers some great performances in music, dance and theatre, as well as tours and festivals - which could entail traveling a little further afield!
Share the experience of seeing a film each month. Movies are selected based on what’s getting the best reviews and most likely to appeal to our members. Each year we see some amazing films, usually at a downtown theatre. In the months leading up to the Golden Globes and Academy Awards, extra movie nights are added so that we can see many of the nominated films.
Meets: Usually the 2nd Monday or Tuesday evening of the month, with extra Mondays or Tuesdays during awards season.
