Category: Past Interns

Lana Galbraith

was a humanities student and although the focus of her studies was mainly rooted in topics that did not directly touch sustainability, Lana interned at CUCCR in the fall of 2017. Lana said that the internship allowed her to develop a personal and professional interest outside of her academic experiences.

Scarlet Fountain

is a theatre undergraduate and sustainability ambassador. Her goal is to create and promote sustainable systems and initiatives to disrupt the wasteful and often harmful practices of consumer society. She joined the CUCCR team in October of 2017 and assisted with the 2018 residence reclaimathon. Scarlet has led paper making workshops and even made her own press from CUCCR material! Her favourite CUCCR find are the 35 mm film reels, which she used as part of a theatre production she directed set in an old independent movie theatre.

Caroline Alince

studies Art Education and initially got involved with CUCCR through Sustainable Concordia and the University’s larger sustainability network. Concerned by the lack of compost and general sustainability in Grey Nuns, Caroline interned at CUCCR throughout the winter 2018 semester. Caroline helped organize the Residence Reclaimathon, during which students moving out of residence were able to donate their reusable material rather than throw it out. Caroline has made jewelry, assemblages, paintings, and upcycled gifts using treasures that would have otherwise gone to the landfill.

Chloё Lalonde

is an anthropology and art education student who joined CUCCR as a depot volunteer in March 2017. Chloë is now CUCCR Project Archivist, documenting all things CUCCR in our very own volunteer handbook. She has written profiles of the artists in the CUCCRxVAV Residency in The Concordian as assistant arts editor in the 2017-2018 academic year. She has also helped inform our skillshare and workshop offerings, by proposing and helping to execute a tabletop easel workshop made with reclaimed wood. She then used the additional materials to make a full set for her painting and drawing students… by far her favourite CUCCR find!

Harry Heighington

is currently a student in the geography and urban planning department with a passion for sustainability and making. Through his time as a depot volunteer at CUCCR, Harry developed the SHED project, which looks reduce waste by providing alternatives to traditional consumerism that promote tool literacy and other hands-on and sustainable practices. As the current SHED coordinator at CUCCR, Harry has conducted several workshops and skillshares and is currently working on establishing a community workshop space and tool library for CUCCR members.
