Parmela Attariwala (SUBMITTED)

An expert in the relationship between multiculturalism and arts funding is visiting Brandon University this semester.

The BU School of Music is hosting Parmela Attariwala as this year’s Stanley Knowles Distinguished Visiting Professor. Attariwala will conduct three free public lectures at BU in conjunction with the Institute for Research in Music and Community and will teach a course in the School of Music.

Attariwala’s first public lecture, "The Effects Of Multiculturalism On Publicly Funded Canadian Music," will take place on Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. in the R.D. Bell Hall of the Queen Elizabeth II Music Building. She will also speak on Feb. 7 and on March 21.

Also an accomplished violinist/violist and composer, she will perform on March 26 as part of the BU New Music Festival.

"Dr. Attariwala is a leading authority on Canadian cultural policy as it relates to multiculturalism and arts funding," said BU’s dean of music, Greg Gatien. "While in residence here at Brandon University, her teaching, research collaborations, public performances and lectures should provide significant opportunities to consider the evolution of both our musical community and our curriculum."
