We asked Zainub a few questions, here's what she had to say:

Why did you decide to serve on our board?
Circumspect of the importance of labour training in Culture Sector and my continued advocacy for building the next generation leadership in the sector defines my alignment with the WIC’s Mandate & Mission. Being on the Board offers me an opportunity to contribute to the work WIC.

What do you enjoy the most about contributing to the cultural sector?
Given my four-decades in the sector, mentoring is the most satisfying contribution to the sector.

What is an interesting or fun project that you’re currently working on?
Currently engaged in an interesting project that will build capacity for use of new digital technology such as Augmented Reality for Visual Arts sector.

What’s your favourite cultural activity and why? Or what cultural activity do you like to participate in most often?
Among many, organizing community and building alliances around issues that are vital to the culture sector often becomes a major occupation beyond the regular call of duty!
