BFA, Art Education and Anthropology
Sustainability Champion Award
When I wasn’t in class at Concordia, you could be sure to find me surrounded by paper and stuff in the basement of the Hall Building at CUCCR (Concordia University Centre For Creative Reuse), or on my laptop writing and editing articles for The Concordian at The Hive. My peers at both CUCCR and The Concordian were really what made my undergraduate degree what it is. And while the work that I did there often felt more important than my class work, combined, the world was at my fingertips. Subjects wove in and out, feeling all too relevant, all the time.
I would like to thank CUCCR’s Arrien Weeks and Anna Timm-Bottos for guiding me on my journey in creative reuse and sustainability, Stan Charbonneau (department assistant in Art Education) for making the impossible very possible, my 4TH SPACE and CUCCR families, and Faculty of Fine Arts faculty Salinda Hess, Thérèse Mastroiacovo, Mindy Yan Miller, Orit Halpern and Michelle Lasalle, among many others, for awakening creative practices within me that I will carry onto my master’s studies.
