Brock University Students’ Union (BUSU) is hosting a free event for students with actor Dan Levy.
Students can register for one of 600 spots at the Q&A event, which will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5 via Zoom.
Levy received critical acclaim for starring as David Rose in the CBC sitcom Schitt’s Creek. He was also the co-creator and executive producer of the show and is the only person to win Emmy awards for acting, directing, writing and producing in a single year. Schitt’s Creek has also been applauded for its representation of queer characters and romance.
In August 2020, Levy enrolled in and began to promote the 12-week self-paced Massive Open Online Course, “Indigenous Canada,” hosted by Tracy Bear (Montreal Lake First Nation) and Paul Gareau (Métis and French Canadian) of the University of Alberta.
“Our event with Dan Levy came about in an effort to provide a fun experience for students,” said BUSU Vice-President, Student Services Faten Darbaj. “However, we will also be chatting about personal stories on bullying and creating positive spaces in the LGBTQ+ community, learning more about the Canada Indigenous course he is currently promoting, and what is next for Dan.”
This event is hosted in collaboration with student unions at Brock University, Niagara College, Algonquin College, McMaster University, Carleton University, Fanshawe College, University of Ottawa, Cambrian College, George Brown College, St. Clair College and Conestoga College.
