The South Asian Studies Institute is pleased to announce that a date has been set for its next curated exhibit at the Sikh Heritage Museum titled ‘We Are Hockey.’ The exhibit is a vibrant counter narrative of Canada’s beloved sport: hockey. Centred on the experiences of peoples of colour, this exhibit challenges singularly racial perspectives on the meaning of Hockey as Canada’s national sport while negotiating the often ambivalent, yet very relevant interrogations of race, ethnicity and the privilege and power of settler communities.

The exhibit’s Gold Sponsor is Rogers with Silver Sponsor CrossConnect Media and Bronze Sponsor the Department of Communications at SFU. The exhibit will also feature a community partnership with the Vancouver Canucks, OMNI TV and Sportsnet.

Opening reception on Friday, March 29th beginning at 5pm includes an opening address by Dr. Joanne Maclean, President and Vice-Chancellor at UFV. The reception will also feature your chance to meet with two Hockey Night Punjabi commentators, Randip Janda and Harnarayan Singh. Please do keep an eye out on our Instagram and social  media pages (@ufvsasi) for updates.

All are welcome to attend. Please feel free to share this save the date with others. For any additional questions please connect with satinderdhillon87@gmail.com
