ImprovLab Funding

Posted on Thursday, October 12th, 2017

On behalf of the School, congratulations to Ajay Heble and his team who received a grant of $2.03 million to create ImprovLab to create a publicly accessible performance space for practices related to improvisation.  This grant is important for the research relating to Critical Studies in Improvisation, and show-cases the innovative research within the School.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
