A Message from our Program Coordinator Rebecca Peirson
The annual Arts Management student-led symposium, Arts Ahead, marks my favourite juncture in the program because it’s the culmination of each student’s hard work, their collaboration as a cohort and their determination to collectively put their learning to the ultimate test – the execution of their capstone event. In this sixth edition of Arts Ahead, this year’s team has had the biggest challenge to date: to pivot to the virtual space. I could not be more proud of the soon-to-be graduates of the 2021 academic year. Because of the supportive and safe community they have created as a cohort, they have superseded all expectations and innovated and figured out how to become “broadcasters” in this virtual world. From your home to our program’s “home”, I heartedly welcome you to Arts Ahead 2021- Vibrations: Arts, Wellness & The Search for Balance.
