Curating Memory Lecture Series
As part of the 21st Century Renaissance thematic programme, the Ismaili Centre, Burnaby is pleased to host Professor Judith Marcuse, founder and co-director of the International Centre for Art and Social Change (ICASC), and Artist in Residence at Simon Fraser University.
Professor Marcuse will speak to the role of the performing arts in social development both locally and globally.
Best known originally as a dancer and choreographer, over some 40 years, Judith Marcuse has added directing, producing, teaching, research, writing and consulting to her creative activities. In 1980, she established a repertory touring dance company and, since then, has led many other local, national and international initiatives ranging from symposia and festivals to multiyear, multi-partner art for social change (ASC) projects in Canada and abroad.
