The new CoMM Lab at Cape Breton University, built to promote collaboration and community-based research on music, dance, performance and other media was supported by $399,915 from the Nova Scotia Research and Innovation Trust. Read the article featured on the NSRIT website!
In the past year, several projects developed in concert with the CoMM have addressed social issues and positively impacted the community. The projects have resulted in tangible research outcomes including exhibits, CDs, documentary films, performance pieces, and publications, as well as virtual, web-based resources.
The CoMM Lab supports intensive creative, critical public outreach and education programs. This has been welcomed by local communities and has translated into events that have attracted scholars, community members and other interest groups.
