More on our facilitators:
Gail Lotenberg is a choreographer who uses dialogue to inspire the making of dance, and dance to deepen the process of dialogue. Her work as Artistic Director of LINK Dance Foundation began in the Yukon in 2001 and after relocating its base of operations to Vancouver in 2007 she became widely recognized for choreographic collaborations involving scientists, legal scholars, restorative justice advocates, and the public. Her innovation has been to take ideas generated by people outside the world of dance and to expand and translate these ideas into the universal language of the body. Lotenberg’s current interest is to develop Mass Dance events to enhance Public Activism. From 2008-2012, Lotenberg was contracted almost continuously as an Associate Artist with Simon Fraser University. Her dance projects have toured throughout Canada, to the US and Europe since 1998.
Rebecca Geddes believes in all things interdisciplinary. Coming from a background of training in the sciences, this organically led Rebecca into her passion and integration of the fine arts. She is a strong advocate for active engagement and in placing community and art in dialogue together. After finishing her Diploma in Studio Art at Capilano University, Rebecca finished her Masters of Art at COFA and her Cabinetry Certification in Sydney, Australia. Her inquisitive, curious and playful nature is one that naturally flows into her artwork and in the search of her own identity. She now splits her time between running an art center in Sydney Australia, Boston and Vancouver.
All the best,
The Art for Impact Team
