A writer who has published several works of literature and poetry, Fave lived in Africa for eighteen years where she founded a cultural venue in Senegal as well as a communications corporation that provided consultations to the Ministry of Culture. She has worked in Canada’s community development and social sector since 2006. CDA President Michael Trent commented in a press release that, “As an artist and social advocate she brings to the role a potent world view that is passionate, inclusive and forward thinking. Nathalie’s multi-facted experience and exemplary leadership skills will serve Canada’s dance community in all its diversity.” Of her thoughts on leading CDA into the future, Fave told The Dance Current: “I will do my best to lead the Canadian Dance Assembly into the next stage of development in order to support and link with the dance community to the best of my abilities. There is a tremendous amount of potential in our sector and I enjoy working among you!”
