The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences current alumni of the month, Colleen Power, will perform at the event.

“ACT’s mandate is summed up by its slogan, Where Ambition Finds Direction,” said Gemma Hickey, executive director and HSS alumni and current gender studies graduate student.

“It’s about ensuring that young artists know how to enter the professional arena.”
