My name is Christine Ackerley, and I just started as an administrative research assistant for the CFICE Knowledge Mobilization Hub. I’m a fourth-year Journalism and Communications student at Carleton University. As a research assistant, my responsibilities include webinar support, web content management, strategic communications and supporting the Mobilization Committee of C2UExpo 2015.
I’m also working on a proposal for a series of news stories for CFICE. I’ll probably interview many of you in the CFICE community for stories and profiles!
I’m very excited to work with the CFICE team and learn more about knowledge mobilization practices.
Between November 7 and 9, 2014 at Carleton University, the Michaëlle Jean Foundation and Carleton University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences are organizing the Power of the Arts National Forum. This year’s theme will be “Acting Now for Social Change.”
The Forum convenes researchers, business leaders, legal experts, policymakers, urban planners, architects, youth, health practitioners, artists, and representatives of other key sectors of Canadian society. The main objectives of the Forum are to reinforce a Pan-Canadian and multi-sector network of researchers, practitioners and organizations using the arts as tools for social change and to enhance an action plan reinforcing national, regional and local initiatives using the arts to improve the quality of life in underserved communities.
