Anne, a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts since 2006, attended the Academy’s Annual General Assembly in Kitchener-Waterloo in May, 2011.

Highlights included a day-long symposium on art and technology with artist participants from across the country sharing their thoughtful, creative explorations at both the leading and back ends of technological development; visits and receptions at local galleries—Harbinger Gallery, University of Waterloo Art Gallery, Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery—exhibiting the works of RCA members both new and long-standing; a tour of the new Waterloo Regional Museum designed by Moriyama and Teshima, an enchanting building that is a metaphor for the meeting of regional history (think Mennonites in horse-drawn buggies, covered bridges and quilts) with cutting edge research and development (think complexity and quantum computing).
