Artist-researcher with the Culture of Cities Centre and an advisory committee member for the Ontario Nonprofit Network’s sector-wide Evaluation Strategy. Will try to update this section soon with some background on my mixed methods and evolving research interests.
Researcher-in-residence with Dreamwalker Dance Company from 2014 – 2016. ‘Collaboration’ was a key research theme. One of the outcomes of the inquiry was a simple tool to help guide the development of positive creative collaborations. A copy of the tool is available for download here.
Research grant from the Ontario Arts Council for Invisible Art (it was more tangible than it sounds).
As co-facilitator of the Stand Firm Network, authored a coordinated response from leading culturally diverse arts organizations in Ontario and Manitoba for the Canada Council for the Arts’ 2010 Strategic Plan Consultation. The report was commended by network members as being ‘excellent,’ ‘a very succumbing document [that] tempered the conversation very well,’ ‘hitting the nail on the head,’ and most importantly, ‘outlined potential solutions.’ The Stand Firm Network was a capacity building program operated by the Equity Office at Canada Council; the program ran for 10 years before concluding in 2011.
