Friday, June 26, 2020 @11:30 amRACE & PRIVILEGE: AN HONEST, OVERDUE CONVERSATION WITH OURSELVES

Join this interactive session hosted by CHREI and SCLD where you will engage in a facilitated listening and dialogue session on race and privilege, gaining perspective on and challenging the assumptions we make about one another based on our personal privileges.



“If a conversation is hard, it’s probably the one worth having.” Sparked by the recent anti-Black racism protests around the world, this interactive session will utilize a conversational toolkit*, wildcards and a series of dialogue-based questions that will help to empower difficult conversations around race and privilege with one another, but most importantly — with ourselves. The session will also engage participants in gaining perspective on and challenging the assumptions we make about one another based on our personal privileges. This conversation is not easy. It does not end when the hype slows, or after a week of posting on our social media. It is life long work, and it begins with ourselves. So lets connect.

*This session is open to all students, staff & faculty.

This conversation will provide an opportunity for Black-identified students to connect with one another on this critical issue, and hear about helpful resources to prevent and address experiences and concerns of racism.

Drawing Essentials is a series of workshops where you will learn the basics of drawing, and work through several lessons to design and draw your very own still life artwork.

Why Shape, Value & Space? Shape (or form) is the basis of most art pieces. Even the most complex objects can be created using basic geometric shapes. Value, the amount of lightness or darkness in a drawing, creates the illusion of light. Space works closely with both of these elements to represent a drawing visually.

Every Monday, we will release a video and exercise on a specific drawing technique that you can practice on your own. On the Friday evening of the same week, there will be a livestream via Zoom to ask questions and share your progress.

Introduction to comedy: Laughter as Medicine- A chuckle a day keeps the doctor away.
Facilitated by Alan Feiman.

An actor and stand up comedian will illustrate how having a sense of humour and laughing at life's foibles, when appropriate, can be a healthy way to deal with and potentially solve those problems.

Please join us for a relaxing evening to explore and discover your inner comedian.

This workshop may help you develop a stronger sense of confidence when interacting with the public (PPT presentations, public speaking, socializing, etc..).
