5 things to do in and around Victoria this Wednesday, March 1st


Happy hump day, Victoria!

The snow has cleared and the sun is shining. With little in the way between you and your daily dose of fun, it’s time to enjoy the first day of March with a local event.

From art socials to comedy nights here are five ways you can enjoy your Wednesday:

Artful: 55+ Art Social with April Caverhill

  • Where: Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, 1040 Moss Street
  • When: Wednesday, March 1st, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Café Historique: Dr Andrew Wender

March’s talk, entitled “Salvation Through Empire: The Changing Shapes of Messianic Imperialism Past, Present, and Future”, will be presented by Dr Andrew Wender, a specialist in Middle Eastern History, World History, and Religion and Law.

  • When: Wednesday, March 1st, 7 p.m.

Sonic Jazz: Colin Stetson

Stetson’s astounding physical engagement with his instruments (chiefly bass and alto saxophones) produces emotionally rich and polyphonic compositions that transcend expectations of what solo horn playing can sound like.

For this performance, Colin Stetson will be triggering video and lighting events with his instruments, adding a live visual dimension to his legendary visceral sonic craft.
