About the webinar

Judith Marcuse’s webinar will explore the burgeoning connections between art, innovation, and social change by highlighting some of the work being done in communities across Canada and internationally that employ art-making as a central strategy. Her work explores the question of how we can use a cultural lens and arts-infused practices to create more dynamic, healthy and creative cities.

Marcuse will explore what it means to integrate art perspectives and practices into change agendas in order to inform and enrich our approaches to social innovation. She will also highlight her recent work with organizations such as Cirque du Soleil’s NGO, One Drop, and in strategic planning for the City of Vancouver.

Arts-infused facilitation and other arts-based strategies can effectively address the complexity of the many challenges we face in the development of cross-sector collaboration (and in many other forms of change work). Marcuse will share insights about partnerships between arts and non-arts organizations, as well as the role that arts facilitation can take in the creation of inclusive policy and governance models. 

And, because we are in the realm of vision and imagination, she will share a few simple methods to help enliven our own work habits and perspectives.

Cities for People & Social Innovation Generation

Cities for People is a Canada-wide collaborative experiment in making cities better.  Cities for People explores the question: How can we enhance social, ecological and economic wellbeing and help civic cultures thrive? It focuses on connecting people, organizations and innovations across four themes: CityScapes, Art and Society, Citizen Spaces, and New Economies.

SiG is a collaborative partnership between The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, the University of Waterloo, the MaRS Discovery District, and the PLAN Institute. Our ultimate goal is to support whole system change through changing the broader economic, cultural and policy context in Canada to allow social innovations to flourish.
