Wascana has partnered with IICSI’s Regina site on a number of creative and productive research projects, exploring subjects including the therapeutic use of iPads for music-making and the health impacts of participation in improvisational practices. Amanda Schenstead, a music therapist at Wascana, and Rick Kotowich, a health educator with Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region Native Health Services, have both made significant contributions to IICSI events across sites, presenting their processes, outcomes, and insights to a diverse group of colleagues and audience members.
