On Monday evening, June 25th, Judith Marcuse will lead a free public workshop sponsored by the City of Ottawa while she is in the capital to do consulting work with city officials.
Arts for Social Change: An Interactive Workshop
Community Arts and Social Engagement, City of Ottawa is pleased to present an interactive workshop for artists of all disciplines and others working to engage community.
Join Judith Marcuse for a hands-on workshop designed to provide experience of ideas and methods she uses in her work with both young people and adults in Canada and abroad. Using games, exercises, image-making, movement and dialogue, participants will explore their creative impulses in an energizing process designed to create ideas for positive change. Artists and others working in the health sector, in community centres, the justice system, environmental advocacy, with youth and elders, and in social innovation settings will take away new ideas for approaches to facilitation and creative problem-solving. No theatre or dance experience is needed. Just wear comfy clothing and be prepared for laughter, and perhaps, new insights.
An advocate for the integration of arts-based dialogue into diverse social change contexts, Marcuse works in arts, university and community settings in Canada and abroad, most recently in Northern Ireland, Finland and South Africa. Founder and Co-Director of the International Centre of Art for Social Change (www.icasc.ca), she is a Senior Fellow of Ashoka International. Among her many honours, she has received the Lee and Chalmers Canadian choreographic awards and an honorary doctorate from Simon Fraser University.
Judith Marcuse’s career spans over 40 years of professional work as a dancer, choreographer, director, producer, teacher, writer, consultant and lecturer in Canada and abroad.
