Our Department is proud to be a key recipient of the generosity of our local patron, renowned Canadian fibre artist Marilyn Walker. On November 5, 2008 the university announced that she has donated $15 million to Brock’s School of Fine and Performing Arts — the largest donation the University has ever received. With gratitude our School has been renamed the The Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. Please see here for more information about this ground-breaking and future-building event. Thank-you, Marilyn!
At the 2008 Fall Convocation, DART graduate Jacelyn Holmes received the Spirit of Brock award. The 23-year-old dramatic arts student received special recognition from the university for her academic work and contribution to life at the school. “Art is life!” she declared after receiving her award, which is given to one student who is deemed to embody the spirit of Sir Isaac Brock by inspiring other students.

Creativity, Art and the Margins of Mental Health
Monday, January 14th, 2008
Pond Inlet at Brock University, St. Catharines, ON
On January 14, 2008, the Department of Dramatic Arts at Brock University will host an interdisciplinary, one-day symposium on the topic of mental health, ‘madness’ and creativity as part of its mainstage season featuring performances of Caryl Churchill’s The Skriker and Peter Weiss’ Marat/Sade. The symposium’s aim is to investigate this emergent theme of our mainstage productions from a multiplicity of vantage points by bringing together scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplines. Of particular interest is the arguably contentious and challenging process of representing ‘madness’ in performance and other forms of artistic expression.
