Stephanie McKenzie has been invited to present her paper, “Spirituality and Art: Emily Carr and Van Gogh,” for the Henri J.M. Nouwen Lecture in Contemporary Spirituality. Forthcoming. Sacred Heart University, Fairfield, Connecticut. 2015.
Funded by the Canada Council and the Newfoundland & Labrador Arts Council, Stephanie McKenzie is working on her next creative work, As Crows and John-Crows Fly, which is a response to the shared history between Newfoundland and the West Indies.
Saviours in This Little Space for Now brings together two greats artists — Emily Carr (1871 – 1945) and Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890). Their spiritual yearnings and frustrations with societies that did not understand them seem to find a home together. Saviours in This Little Space for Now suggests that true salvation can be found in the greatest paintings and creations of our time.

Grenfell, Atrium, new arts and science extension
Produced by Dr. Shoshannah Ganz and Dr. Stephanie McKenzie.
Women across Canada have made some remarkable gains in recent years, with half the provinces, like Newfoundland and Labrador, now headed by a woman premier, and more women than men graduating from our universities and colleges. However, the income gap between rich and poor in Canada and the gender gap between men and women have been widening. The World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report ranks Canada in 20th place in 2013, and the research organization Catalyst gives us a grade of “C.”
