Cultural Connections

Cultural Connections events will enhance the Congress experience by providing opportunities for learning, reflection, networking, and entertainment for attendees: creatively bridging the social sciences, humanities, and the arts and building on the Congress theme, “Gathering diversities.” These events will showcase the University’s strengths in the areas of art and technology, music, theatre, film, and visual arts, and build connections with Regina’s arts community at large.

More information coming soon.
