1:30pm: Documentary Screening
3:15pm: Celebration of Life
Join the University of Victoria Department of Theatre for a celebration of the inspiring - but far too brief - life of Eva Markvoort (BFA '10). A student in the theatre acting program, Eva succumbed to a life long battle with Cystic Fibrosis this spring on March 27. Her internationally followed blog, 65_RedRoses, chronicled her experiences with the disease and advocated support for cystic fibrosis and the importance of organ donation.
Read more about Eva's life and this alumna's amazing time at UVic through stories from her professors and friends (courtesy of "Art Openings" online journal). See today's Times Colonist for an article about the clebration of her life.
All are welcome to join friends, family and faculty as we pay homage to Eva's indomitable spirit. A special full length screening of "65_Redroses: Every breath counts," the award-winning documentary about Eva's life, will precede the celebration. Guests are welcome to attend all or any part of the event.
