3 June 2013, Vancouver, BC, for immediate release: The directors and staff of Judith Marcuse Projects (JMP) are delighted to announce the launch of a five-year, national research program in art for social change (ASC) in Canada. ASC refers to the broad spectrum of ways in which the arts are used to engage people and encourage positive change.
Judith Marcuse Projects Society is so pleased to announce that Jan Volker has joined its Board.
We have posted the photos from the Chataqua Project gathering that was held on February 27, 2013.
This was the last Chataqua Project event in our year-long, pilot series where we focused on intercultural issues.
The Arts and Individual Well-Being in Canada:
Connections between Cultural Activities and Health, Volunteering, Satisfaction with Life, and Other Social Indicators in 2010.
The January 2013 Hill Strategies report shows that "there is a strong connection between 18 cultural activities and eight indicators of health and well-being (such as health, mental health, volunteering, feeling stressed, and overall satisfaction with life). Cultural participants have significantly better results than non-participants for 101 out of 144 cross-tabulations (or 70%)."
You can now connect with ICASC and Judith Marcuse Projects on our new facebook and twitter sites.
We have changed our newsletter format and given it a fresh new look.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Winter is here.
In this part of the world, thick carpets of leaves perfume the air and, although our Canadian west coast grey skies occasionally light up to a brilliant blue, the sun arrives late and leaves early. The wind and rain have come; we had our first wind/snowstorm earlier than usual...the first sign of a more extreme winter we are told is coming.
