2016-17 at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts –A year in review

In its second year at the new downtown address, Brock University and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts (MIWSFPA) continue to win international acclaim and awards for the facility. The 2016-17 academic year saw the unveiling of the Rotary Club Reflecting Pool. We hosted visiting conferences and special events such as the Merleau-Ponty Circle Philosophy Conference in September, top Canadian authors gathered for the Two Days of Canada Conference in October, and in January we hosted the Social Justice Research Institute’s third annual Arts, Archives and Affinities event: “Growing Together.” For the first time in Brock’s history we participated in the September/October national Culture Days weekend celebration. The School continues to produce a stimulating program for the university and regional communities under the banner of “Breaking the Surface”.
