Ni’kmaq and Resilience: Two engaging new exhibitions are up in Sherwood Park, Nelson White’s Ni’kmaq — My Family, and Margaret Witschel and Delio Delgado’s Resilience. White is a Mi’kmaq artist and member of the Flat Bay First Nation Band (No’kmaq Village) in Flat Bay, Newfoundland, sharing stories of the strong bonds formed within extended families and communities. Witschl’s paintings, meanwhile, serve as her navigational tool for supporting her own mental well-being amidst life’s challenges, while Delgado’s large-scale abstract paintings provide a glimpse into his reflections on mortality and healing. Artist reception is 6:30 p.m. Sept. 6, mark it!

Free science for evacuees: Telus World of Science has announced free admission for families displaced by wildfires. The offer includes access to the six permanent Exhibit Galleries and the Zeidler Dome theatre. “In 2016, my family and I were forced to leave our home in Fort McMurray because of wildfires,” notes TWoSE’s president and CEO Constance Scarlett. “I know the stress and worry these families are facing. If free admission to the Science Centre can help raise their spirits, even a little, then we must do it.” Families just need to show their government-issued ID at the box office to get in — IMAX screenings, laser shows and Art of the Brick not included.

Ahsoka (2023): Normally this space would encourage engagement for positive reasons, but the first episodes of the new Star Wars series Ahsoka are so gratingly dull and badly written, it’s kind of worth watching them just to join the conversation about what went wrong. Rosario Dawson is absolutely stiff as the no-fun lead, and the dialogue and stakes are just shy of pointless. Warless Star Wars? Watch Foundation instead!
