Anti-racism Training (Virtual)

Sanath Training 

This Canadian-based workshop will help participants build knowledge and skills about anti-racism, as well as practice active-witness strategies to disrupt racism.

The Anti-Racism Response Training Program (A.R.T.), developed by Dr. Ishu Ishiyama uses a witness-centered approach to disrupting racism. This training is designed to encourage participants to shift from being frozen or silent bystanders to becoming active witnesses. In doing so, we can disrupt racism and build a safer and more inclusive community.

Campbell River Community Walks

Walk With Me

This arts-based community action project seeks to uncover the human dimensions of the toxic drug poisoning crisis as it has unfolded locally in Campbell River. Within and through it, a group of artist-researchers, front-line workers and people with lived and living experience have banded together in a sprit of solidarity, attempting to come to terms with the impact of the crisis on individuals and community groups through a practice of story sharing. Through stories, we aim to cultivate awareness leading to change.
