"Understanding Sustainable Material Pedagogy in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia"

Building on my masters’ research, my research project seeks to explore ways that settlers and non-Indigenous people can engage in meaningful recolonization and decolonization-based processes.

Working with Press Start, a youth-led co-operative arcade located in Bâtiment 7, this community-based research project is looking to explore the needs of youth in respect to making topics pertaining to reconciliation and decolonization accessible, inclusive, relatable and impactful by working with them to co-create educational programming that addresses issues themed by reconciliation and decolonization. This process of co-creating educational programming will be carried out in collaboration with Concordia’s Office of Community Engagement, the Montreal Urban Aboriginal Community Strategy Network and Canadian Roots Exchange.

Themes: Community, Social Justice
