Sarah Cullingham is a PhD student and course instructor at Trent University where she is fashioning herself as a drug policy researcher. Sarah is also a partner in the Peterborough Drug Strategy and member of the City of Peterborough’s Planning Advisory Committee. Born and raised in Toronto and having spent significant time living and learning in Coast Salish territory, Sarah moved to Peterborough/Nogojiwanong in 2013 for what was intended to be a one-year stay. Seven+ years, four job changes, and one return to school later, she is grateful to now make her home here in the ‘place at the end of rapids’. As someone with a deep-seated appreciation of the arts and the many creative practices that animate our communities, Sarah is excited to contribute to EC3’s mission of strengthening the creative ecology of our region.
