SHADOWS OF RACISM: VOICES UNHEARD
Shadows of Racism: Voices Unheard is a federally funded project focused on anti-racism education, community knowledge, and centering student voice. Through participation in the project, secondary students connect with members of their communities to listen, learn, and re-tell their stories, through art and video, of contributions to shaping Canada in diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Students will engage in workshops that explore structures and histories on identity, diversity, social justice, as well as training in oral history method and artistic expression in visual art and video production. Students will produce their own individual multi-medium artistic expressions of lesser known or unknown stories of contributions in celebration of excellence. There will be a public exhibition on “Narratives of Excellence in Canada”.
ALPHA Education is thrilled to be embarking on this important project with Making Art, Making Change; Asian Canadian Educators Network, and students, teachers, education leaders of public and Catholic district school boards.
