CAHD benefit concert raises over $5,000

A benefit concert for the Centre for the Arts in Human Development (CAHD), presented in November 2011 by the Applied Human Sciences Student Association, raised over $5000 for the Fine Arts research centre.

According to CAHD Executive Director Lenore Vosberg, the event was a great success.

"The interaction between the Centre performers and the performing students from Concordia demonstrated genuine integration. We are very pleased and grateful that the Applied Human Sciences Student Association of Concordia took the initiative to organize this important event on the Loyola campus. We are hoping this will be an annual event and that further collaboration with this student - run association will facilitate more awareness at the University  of the Centre and its unique creative arts therapies program for people with special needs."

The event raised funds which will be used toward the production costs of the CAHD's upcoming June 2012 original cultural ethnodrama production. Directed by Creative Arts Therapies associate professor Stephen Snow, this unique piece of theatre is based on the lives of Centre participants and the importance of culture in their lives.
