UTSC launches SoundLife Scarborough to bring together community and music


The University of Toronto Scarborough’s music and culture program has launched SoundLife Scarborough (SLS), a new research centre that brings together community engagement and music. “The centre supports community partnerships and community-engaged research excellence grounded in the principle of reciprocity,” said SLS co-lead and UTSC Assistant Professor Laura Risk. “We’re trying to help facilitate connections and really think about how we can contribute to the already vibrant musical world in Scarborough.” The centre will build and develop lasting relationships between the university and the community. It will also offer free and accessible programming to the community, such as pop-up and weekly music-making events.
