Online Workshops

Growing into yourself is never easy at the best of times. The pandemic has had profound impacts on youth, disrupting social routines and challenging youth who have often experienced isolation, boredom, and anxiety about what the future holds. We wanted to find a fun and engaging way to strengthen personal resilience among youth that will have a long-lasting impact on their development. We want to help them build skills that positively support themselves and their peers, not just during these challenging times, but all the time.

In collaboration with Montreal-based Never was Average, we are pleased to offer three online workshops focused on different aspects of personal empowerment. These workshops were recorded live and are now available for viewing below. We also encourage you to use it as a starting point to run your own workshop!

Please note that for privacy and security reasons, attendee interactions have been removed from the recordings.  

Artivism: The Power of Art in Public Space

– This video has been edited to remove workshop attendees –

“Art is a disruptive and propelling force. Creative expression is one of the most powerful tools we can use to activate and trigger change,” Ava DuVernay. Many artists and creatives use the arts to denounce injustices. Art largely contributes to the understanding of the world and its various issues and plays a major role in the perception of social subjects by the public. In this conversation, we will discuss together the power of art in public space.

The Social Trap

– Edited workshop video coming soon –

Your online presence probably takes many forms already. Your digital identity is the fusion of all the attributes and information available online. In this conversation, we’ll explore if your online footprint reflects your values, reality and reflect on how our constant clicking, liking, swiping, and algorithms have impacted our lives.

Not Your Average Identity

– Edited workshop video coming soon –

Self-Identity is your knowledge and perception of yourself. It is by experiencing, learning and having feedback from those around us that we come to identify our characteristics, abilities, needs and feelings. Together, we will discuss the different ways of accepting, building self-esteem and evolving at our own pace.
