Entering its third year, Courage Lab has brought together diverse artists, educators, organizers and activists to courageously investigate, share and experiment with concepts, ideas, tools and practices for exploring equity, race, reconciliation and anti-oppression through the arts!
This spring will build on past themes to explore intersectionality, transformative justice and organizational equity in creative, participatory and art-based ways, led by an incredible line up of established artists, activists and facilitators.
Featured guest facilitators and artists will be announced just prior to each event!
Admission is free. Food will be served.
The hands-on, arts centred series will include:
