Meet the COR Family: Nick Faye

Hey everyone, I’m Nick and I work in Partnerships and Storytelling with COR and Inclusion Regina. My role is an interesting mix of responsibilities, including grant writing, securing partnerships to fund Inclusion Regina/COR programming, running social media accounts, and booking/managing/facilitating the Sir Dance-A-Lot Concert Series and Dance Experiences.

I joined COR in 2021 after almost 5 years of working in different non-profits. It’s been a supportive environment for me to grow both personally and professionally through the various projects I’ve gotten to work on. I’ve been able to learn about Gentle Teaching and Person Centered Thinking in some really cool training sessions, which has been really rewarding.

My favourite project at COR has been re-launching Sir Dance-A-Lot as a concert series and dance experience. As a musician in my spare time, it’s been really special to connect some of my talented musician friends with others who come to the events. I’ve enjoyed securing funding, managing booking and logistics, and event managing. It’s a privilege to watch so much amazing music and see how much fun everyone involved has. So far, my proudest moment at COR has been growing the amount of grant funding that COR/IR has received to support the high quality and important programming offered to the community. I’m happy to know that my hard work is helping to enable Inclusion Regina to offer programs like Tell It Like It Is, Short Breaks, Cents and Sensibility, and Sir Dance-A-Lot at no cost to our community.

Fun Facts about me:

In my free time, I love playing video games, gardening, listening to and making music, and watching sports. I’ve been to 11 MLB baseball parks and plan to visit two more in the Summer of 2023.

One of my favourite books is “Dune”

My favourite quote is “The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth and the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed” by Ernest Hemmingway.
