50th Anniversary Events


The very first day of the UBC Arts One Program was September 18, 1967.

For our 50th anniversary in 2017-2018, we will have:

  • A series of lectures and panel discussions about Arts One throughout the academic year, and
  • A big celebration in Spring 2018

The dates and speakers for these events are still being determined. If you are on our alumni email list you will get information about these as soon as it is ready, and that information will be posted here as well.

In March of 2017 we had our official kick-off event for the 50th anniversary: Arts One teamed up with the Science and Technology Studies program at UBC for the annual Stephen Straker Memorial Lecture. Three former Arts One students discussed their current work as academics and how Arts One contributed to their career trajectories. Please see here for a summary of the event.
