*** NOTE ***
Concordians are extremely well-represented in the Montreal Mirror’s round-up of local movers and shakers. Just on the film front alone, we count Marie-José Saint-Pierre, Kara Blake, Joe Balass and Sharon Hyman among our alumni.
The environment gets a nod with green entrepreneur Sarah Hanneman and former boy-band member turned politico Peter Schiefke, who co-piloted an inititative to commit Concordia students to pledge funds to go green, and is currently trying to get other universities on board. Aimée Van Drimmelen works in eco-sales while she maintains an art practice and co-produces an annual film festival (they don’t get named noisemakers for nothing — these folks are multi-taskers).
Photographers Elena Willis and Pierre Dalpé (who works here too) were singled out, as was DJ/producer Kanwar Anit Singh Saini aka Sikh Knowledge. Faculty are represented by Joanabbey Sack, a part-time instructor in Creative Art Therapies. For more of Leong’s work (above), drop by the Parisian Laundry before his show ends on Feb. 23.
