Past HARC Research Associate, M.A. Student, Interdisciplinary Studies


Nicole Schafenacker is happy to be making Prince George her new home. She is originially from Edmonton, AB where she enjoyed being a part of a fantastic theatre community and working as a playwright and performer. She is one half of the performance company, Prairie House, and her move to PG will be hot on the heels of Prairie House’s development of a new piece of work, Body of Water. Nicole has many interests she enjoys finding ways to interweave- she spent half of 2016 in Indonesia teaching yoga and volunteering with two Yayasans (Non-profits) as well as working on a new play. A new passion of hers is working with young mothers as a birth doula. Last summer she became first acquainted with PG during a short camping trip- she is looking forward to more time in spent in the provincial parks surrounding the area (lovely!) and to immersing herself in the UNBC community.
