Maggie Bridger and Sydney Erlikh selected for Schweitzer Fellowships

DS doctoral students Maggie Bridger and Sydney Erlikh are among the 10 UIC students who have been selected for the distinguished 2019-20 Schweitzer Fellows Program.

The duo will develop and deliver a series of creative movement and dance workshops for children, teens and adults with disabilities at Access Living and their family caregivers. The workshops will focus on developing an artistic voice and perspective, as well as providing a safe space to explore different forms of movement and build an artistic community. They also will promote physical and social-emotional health and build social capital through an inclusive creative process.
