Winter 2015 has brought a veritable cornucopia of creative activities in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.  From the inaugural launch of Sheridan Reads (which also served as the launch of Sheridan’s Creative Campus Series) to the robust partnership the Faculty has developed with the Canadian Caribbean Association of Halton, we have seen a burst of cultural, imaginative and intellectual engagement that brought together students, faculty, staff, and community members.

It is our hope that such creative community events and partnerships will enrich campus life, raise Sheridan’s profile in the region, and give students multiple opportunities to participate in meaningful dialogue.  Peter Ustinov once wittily commented, “Since we are destined to live out our lives in the prison of our minds, it is our duty to furnish it well.” What better way to “furnish” the mind of future leaders well than by weaving into the very fabric of their postsecondary experience an ongoing interaction with cultural and imaginative discourse.
