Christine A. Walsh is a professor at the Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary. In her community-based, action-oriented, and arts-informed research she partners with community-based agencies to understand the lives of individuals who are impacted by interpersonal violence, poverty, housing insecurity and homelessness, and social isolation/exclusion. Her research centres the voices of marginalized populations including older adults with histories of abuse, social exclusion, poverty, and homelessness. Christine aims to create the necessary knowledge base to inform policy and program development to improve the health and social well-being of vulnerable members of society. To achieve this objective, she employs innovative knowledge dissemination approaches, including art to increase public awareness and decrease stigma for members of stigmatized and socially excluded populations.
