Movie Synopsis: Is the crown at war with us? by Alanis Obonsawin
In this feature-length documentary by Alanis Obomsawin, it's the summer of 2000 and the country watches in disbelief as federal fisheries wage war on the Mi'kmaq fishermen of Burnt Church, New Brunswick. Why would officials of the Canadian government attack citizens for exercising rights that had been affirmed by the highest court in the land? Casting her cinematic and intellectual nets into history to provide context, Obomsawin delineates the complex roots of the conflict with passion and clarity, building a persuasive defence of the Mi'kmaq position.

We will take pauses at specific parts of the film to address them, perform small debriefing reflections and check on participants reactions.

Movie Synopsis: Is the crown at war with us? by Alanis Obonsawin
In this feature-length documentary by Alanis Obomsawin, it's the summer of 2000 and the country watches in disbelief as federal fisheries wage war on the Mi'kmaq fishermen of Burnt Church, New Brunswick. Why would officials of the Canadian government attack citizens for exercising rights that had been affirmed by the highest court in the land? Casting her cinematic and intellectual nets into history to provide context, Obomsawin delineates the complex roots of the conflict with passion and clarity, building a persuasive defence of the Mi'kmaq position.

SPECIAL WARNING
The film contains some violent scenes and/or aggressive comments. We will take pauses at specific parts of the film to address them, perform small debriefing reflections and check on participants reactions. We invite attendees to reach the facilitator, Calumet & Stong Colleges resources, or any of York University resources to receive additional support if needed.

Is the Crown at War With Us? By Alanis Obonsawin

An Indigenous-themed movie will be screened to help us understand and appreciate Indigenous Peoples, their history and culture. This workshop was designed with the intention to share knowledge about Indigenous communities, and build awareness about Indigenous peoples, cultures and communities.

Movie Synopsis:
In this feature-length documentary by Alanis Obomsawin, it's the summer of 2000 and the country watches in disbelief as federal fisheries wage war on the Mi'kmaq fishermen of Burnt Church, New Brunswick. Why would officials of the Canadian government attack citizens for exercising rights that had been affirmed by the highest court in the land? Casting her cinematic and intellectual nets into history to provide context, Obomsawin delineates the complex roots of the conflict with passion and clarity, building a persuasive defence of the Mi'kmaq position.

SPECIAL WARNING
The film contains some violent scenes and/or aggressive comments. We will take pauses at specific parts of the film to address them, perform small debriefing reflections and check on participants reactions. We invite attendees to reach the facilitator, Calumet & Stong Colleges resources, or any of York University resources to receive additional support if needed.

Presenter's Bio: Safwath is currently completing his BA in Psychology at York University and hopes to pursue a Master's in Social Work with a focus on mental health. He has been involved with Student Community and Leadership Development (SCLD) as a Peer Health Educator, engaging with students and faculty in incorporating wellness as a daily practice. He has also served as the Academic Representative for Calumet College Council, highlighting the intersection between academic success and mental health. Safwath is passionate about mental health advocacy and aspires to bring changes to inequitable access to mental health services in Canada.

Session Summary: Witnessing my mother battle with anxiety and depression over the years has often left me feeling helpless and alone. I had to watch the person I love wait over 5 months to see a psychiatrist and be unable to seek ongoing therapy. The misconceptions of mental illness within the South Asian community made the journey of healing for my mother difficult and added to my feelings of powerlessness. Through sharing my story, talking to other students and organizations, I realized I wasn't powerless, that I had the power to inspire change in the way we view mental 'illness' and support people's continued fight to seek care. This, is my story.

BOLD IDEAS - A BLACK WOMAN'S EXPERIENCE: NAVIGATING PROFESSIONAL SPACES, BUILDING RESILIENCE, AND BEING A STRONG LEADER

Presenter's Bio: Kamilah Clayton, MSW, RSW, CBT, is a Registered Social Worker, with over 10 years experience working with children, youth, and families. Kamilah holds a Bachelor of Psychology, a Bachelors and Masters in Social Work, and is certified in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Kamilah is an African Centred Rites of Passage Initiate and a former member of Yensomu African Rites of Passage. Kamilah has a private practice in Whitby, ON, where she specializes in issues of Anxiety, Depression, Stress and Racial identity. Kamilah is committed to providing quality mental health counselling and programming to members of the African Canadian Community.

Session Summary: As a child, I was told that I had to work "twice as hard, to be viewed as just as good". This one phrase would shape the way I showed up in all spaces throughout my life, and in particular, the way I exist in the workplace. For Black women, professional spaces can be sites of great satisfaction for the years of hard work you've put into building your career, or they can be sites of trauma and ongoing assaults to who you are. In this session, I will discuss some of my strategies for navigating the workplace as a Black woman, and why now, more than ever, it is imperative to invest in and support Black women.

BOLD IDEAS!: "Your Story Doesn't End Here: Valuing survivors’ diverse experiences with trauma, recovery & activism"

Presenter's Bio: Shalyn Isaacs is a Masters student in the Counselling Psychology & Psychotherapy program at the University of Toronto. She was the first student to serve on the Board of Trustees at the Center for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Canada’s largest mental health hospital. During her time at York University as the Founder and President of Women’s Mental Health Talks and a Leadership Coach with Calumet & Stong Colleges, she worked with hundreds of students to address mental health challenges and navigate experiences with trauma. Her research has focused on intersectional theory and feminist psychology, as well as the interconnections between cultural values and South Asian women’s mental health. She has been a public speaker for 4 years, giving talks related to women’s mental health, sexual violence education and prevention, equitable leadership, perfectionism, and the role of compassion in trauma healing, self-care and systemic equity.

Her work addresses trauma-informed education and leadership. She believes that adopting trauma-informed perspectives within educational and leadership spaces has the potential to create institutions that are equitable and that prioritize the mental health, learning capacities, and empowerment of marginalized individuals and communities.

Session Summary: The “Master American Narrative” (Delker, Salton and McLean, 2019) is a model that has been continuously evoked in North American society that encourages trauma survivors to share their trauma stories in ways that highlight a straight-forward, linear path to healing and recovery; stories that emphasize a developmental trajectory from “trauma victim” to “survivor-advocate.” Notably, there are proven social and psychological benefits that can result from trauma survivors publicly sharing their experiences with healing and recovery. However, redemptive trauma stories are systematically less accessible and advantageous to individuals whose experiences with trauma do not conform to North American preferences for stories that highlight the ‘trauma victim to survivor-advocate’ narrative (Delker, Salton and McLean, 2019).

Individuals with marginalized identities who face discrimination on the basis of their race, gender, sexual identity or socio-economic class often face additional obstacles to sharing their experiences with trauma and becoming social advocates when coping with on-going traumas that are part of their daily existence. Activists and advocates from marginalized backgrounds may start to feel that their work is insufficient as a result of coping with on-going traumas and/or trauma memories.

In this talk, I will be challenging assumptions embedded within the Master American Narrative by highlighting the importance of appreciating diverse trauma stories and emphasizing ways that systemic change and individual psychological healing is connected to collective liberation. I’ll be using my personal experiences with trauma healing and advocacy work in the field of women’s mental health and sexual violence to highlight the importance of appreciating diverse lived experiences with trauma, healing, recovery and activism that rarely follows linear trajectories.

In this talk, we will learn and explore:
● How adopting a trauma-informed lens enhances our own psychological well-being and leadership capabilities.
● What it means to be a “survivor” and/or “social activist” in the context of our own personal life paths.
● The value that our unique lived experiences bring to the advocacy work we choose to engage with.
● How increasing our understanding of the complexities involved with trauma and healing can benefit ourselves and the lives of those we interact with.

BOLD IDEAS: Unmasking failure: An intersectional view at mental health and masculinity

Presenter: Ashim Sharma (Honors BA in Psychology/English, CCSC Leadership Coach, Active Bystander, and Co-lead of the Gender Equity co-Lab (GEL) within the Center for Sexual Violence Response, Support, and Education)

Session Summary: It is often the redemption story within us that we seek, and we take for granted the importance of the failures that lead up to it. Often times, we may even fear the failure that precedes the redemption. But without being knocked down over and over, without the countless failures, and without the endless lessons, the redemption story would just be another story. As a first-generation South-Asian student navigating the diaspora of mass immigration, dealing with mental health issues throughout his life, and addressing masculine norms within society, Ashim is no stranger to failure. Join Ashim in his attempt to change the narrative behind the redemption story and unmask failure to uncover its necessity in everyday life.

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.

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.
