In addition, music faculty member Dr. Christian Erickson will share a compilation of work by M.E.A.T. (Music Ensemble of Audio Technology).
Students and attendees are also invited to the to view the Juried Student Exhibition currently on display in the Edward A. Whitney Gallery.
“We wanted to give students the opportunity to share their research with others outside their department as well as participate in the larger conversation within the research of their discipline,” Michelle Boule Smith, librarian and one of the event organizers, said in a press release. “We also wanted to include students studying creative endeavors like music, art, and dance as well.”
The event, hosted by the Sheridan College Kooi Library in conjunction with faculty, is free and open to the public.
