For the next few weeks we will be sharing with you some interesting information about our latest board member appointees. This week we would like to introduce you to Zainub Verjee.

Zainub Verjee is an artist, curator, writer, senior arts administrator and public intellectual. As an accomplished and influential leader in the art and culture sector, over four decades, she has shaped culture policy at all levels of governments and significantly contributed to building of cultural institutions and organizations in Canada and internationally. Often invited to speak nationally and internationally, on cultural policy, contemporary art and cultural diplomacy, she has been a prolific writer on issues pertaining to Art and Culture. 
Her artwork has been shown internationally, including at the New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art and the Venice Biennale.    

We asked Zainub a few questions, here's what she had to say:

Why did you decide to serve on our board?
Circumspect of the importance of labour training in Culture Sector and my continued advocacy for building the next generation leadership in the sector defines my alignment with the WIC’s Mandate & Mission. Being on the Board offers me an opportunity to contribute to the work WIC.

What do you enjoy the most about contributing to the cultural sector?
Given my four-decades in the sector, mentoring is the most satisfying contribution to the sector.

What is an interesting or fun project that you’re currently working on?
Currently engaged in an interesting project that will build capacity for use of new digital technology such as Augmented Reality for Visual Arts sector.

What’s your favourite cultural activity and why? Or what cultural activity do you like to participate in most often?
Among many, organizing community and building alliances around issues that are vital to the culture sector often becomes a major occupation beyond the regular call of duty!

Stay tuned for next week to learn about Mike Rudolph, HR Business Partner at MaRS Discovery District!
