Meet our new Education Coordinator
MCoS is pleased to welcome Heather Ritenburg as our new Education Coordinator. Heather has been active in the arts, culture and multicultural communities of Saskatchewan for over 25 years as a teacher, volunteer and cultural worker. She has sat on committees and boards for several organizations including SaskCulture, the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan, Palliser Regional Library, Saskatchewan Arts Alliance and the Saskatchewan Association for Multicultural Education.
After several years owning and operating the Ritenburg Dance Studio, Heather returned to university where she obtained an undergraduate degree in arts education followed by graduate degrees in curriculum and instruction. Wherever she is, Heather’s work is motivated by a desire to create equitable and socially just communities and organizations, one relationship at a time.
Heather will coordinate education and training activities for businesses, non-profit organizations, schools and other agencies on topics such as cultural diversity, intercultural communications, anti-racism and equity.
