Dr. Robin Freeman


Robin Freeman grew up in northern Maine and spent summers camping in the forests of New Brunswick. She recently relocated to the Vancouver area from Regensburg, Germany with her partner and two children. She has a background in fundraising, event planning, communications, facilitation, and project management.

Trained in vocal and choral music, Robin is an award-winning educator with several years’ experience teaching in higher education and community-based settings. She has developed arts-based community engagement initiatives and is enthusiastic about harnessing the creative power of the arts for personal and social transformation. 

Robin’s experiences in music and education sparked her interest in collaboration and dialogue. Robin recently completed a Doctor of Education at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York, where her research explored equitable and democratic approaches to adult learning. She has published on collaboration in adult learning, the importance of self-reflection in facilitation, and community-building through artistic practice. She is thrilled to be joining the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue and is eager to contribute to the important work of the Mitigating Wildfire Initiative.
