Unfiltered Truth Talks January 2017

St. George Campus

January 17, 2017
Preserving Memory in Colonized Societies

This discussion will unpack how we use collective memory to preserve our beliefs, culture and history in times and conditions of colonialism. In the context of Canada’s 150th Anniversary on stolen land we would like to discuss how culture is preserved on this land and on other settler colonial lands worldwide. We will attempt to answer questions of how to pass on memory in a society that has continually erased histories of colonial oppression. We will explore how colonial mindsets impact us on campus and how we can work to preserve the history in a just way.
Time: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The Cultural Club Network

Tuesday November 15, 2016
Time and Location: 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm, Multi-Faith Centre, 569 Spadina Avenue, Main Activity Hall
Free Food!

For student executive members of recognized student clubs at U of T.

Do you hold a leadership position in a Cultural Club at U of T?

Are you looking for an opportunity to network with other clubs?

The Cultural Club Network (CCN) is organized by the Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office and will meet once per semester. Student leaders will have the opportunity to connect with a broad diversity of cultural clubs within the University while learning from and with one another, networking, collaborating and engaging in facilitated skills development.

The CCN aims to establish relationships and collaborations between cultural clubs across the University. The topic of this semester’s CCN workshop and networking event is "Thinking About and Creating Accessible Spaces". A presentation will be provided by Students for Barrier FreeAccess (SBA), a non-profit U of T organization that advocates for equity, access, and the rights of disabled students and the greater disability community. We will also have a guest from the University's Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) Office. SBA and AODA will offer helpful insight and advice on how student leaders can make their clubs more accessible. It will also encourage club executive members to think about how ability can impact students experiences based on their multiple identities (for example disability and race) and therefore how they can be accommodating to students with all disabilities whether they are visible or non-visible.

This event is for student leaders. If you would like members of your executive to attend this training and networking opportunity please RSVP to the Eventbrite with your club name and the number of execs that will be attending. If you would like to attend and need accommodation please email antiracism@utoronto.ca.

Unfiltered Truth Talks October 2016

Solidarity & Allyship

Date: October 27, 4 - 6 pm
Location: Multi-purpose Room (207), Multi-Faith Centre

Unfiltered Truth Talks is a drop-in program that allows students to openly discuss equity-related issues like race, faith, gender, sexuality, and various other intersections of identity.

This session will focus on "Solidarity & Allyship." We will problematize allyship by defining, contextualizing, and bringing up questions about its significance and role in solidarity work and activism. Questions in the context of indigeneity, identity, taking up space and the saviour-complex will also be addressed
