Sharing the Stage: Memorial University and the Arts Community in Newfoundland and Labrador
It seems like everyone you meet here is an artist…
Newfoundland and Labrador punches above its weight when it comes to arts and culture. From comedy and theatre, to music and writing, the arts of this province have helped make Newfoundland and Labrador creativity famous from coast to coast.
While there may be something in the water, another thing that many arts initiatives have had in common is a connection to Memorial. From the culturally defining comedy of CODCO that was supported through Memorial Extension, to the scores of writing collectives that have emerged from the English Department, the partnerships between our arts communities and Memorial have enriched our sense of who we are as a province.
Join us for a conversation between some of the characters behind the initiatives, including Andy Jones, Melissa Barbeau, Pam Hall, Greg Malone, and Ian Sutherland as they discuss community university collaboration in the arts, today, yesterday, and into the future.
