Shadows of Racism, Voices Unheard is a CSMARI funded project by the Government of Canada. This project focuses on equity education, community knowledge, and centering student voice. Through participation in the project, grade 9-12 students connect with their communities to listen, learn, and re-tell their stories, through art and video, of excellence and contributions to Canada.


Students engage in workshops that explore history, identity, and representation. Through engagement in art and video making, they respond to the question: Who will you invite to the table, and why? 


Using the language of belonging and humanity, students invited those who are lesser known, with the hope that their art and videos spark similar narratives and conversations beyond theirs.

A Seat at the Table, an exhibition at the Ontario Science Centre, features 267 artworks, 193 3-D art and 74 portrait art, created by grade 9-12 students from four district school boards. This exhibition is a celebration of lived experiences, conversations, and critical thought, imbued with compassionate understanding by and with students and teachers. Each student has chosen to invite one who they believe we would benefit from getting to know as part of our Canadian Experience and Narrative.

We thank the Government of Canada for the CSMARI funding of this exhibition.
