Tuesday, 4 Oct, 2016: CTF-150: Maritime Security And Counter Terrorism In The Middle East

Lecturer: Captain Bill Quinn

Captain Bill Quinn will discuss Canada’s participation in the multi-national counter terrorism task force CTF 150, focusing on maritime security operations across the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Arabian Sea, Gulf of Oman and Indian Ocean. This task force has influenced events ashore by denying international terrorists the use of the seas as a venue for attack or for transporting personnel, weapons, or other illicit material.

Royal Canadian Navy Captain Bill Quinn recently returned from service in the Middle East region with Combined Task Force 150 and will discuss his experience, and Canada’s contribution to the operation.

NOTE: This lecture is on a Tuesday.

Thurs, 13 Oct, 2016: The Art of Command: Portraits and Posters From Canada’s Afghan Mission

Lecturer: Lindsey Sharman, Art Curator for The Founders’ Gallery at The Military Museums

The Art of Command: Portraits and Posters from Canada’s Afghan Mission is a solo exhibition by Gertrude Kearns, Canada’s leading contemporary war artist.

The Art of Command is a reflection of the effects war has on those who call the shots on the front lines. It takes viewers—military and civilian alike—on an emotional journey, through the presentation of fearless, self-assured and ruthlessly honest portraits of military subjects.

This talk will include a tour of the exhibition.
