Grad Talk: Introduction to anti-oppression practices

Oct 21, 3:30pm - Oct 21, 4:30pm

University of Toronto Student Life Programs & Services214 College StreetToronto, ON Map

Anti-oppression practices (AOP) is a framework for being in action against systemic-oppression to create change. It has wide use in many professional areas. This Grad Talk workshop starts by considering how systemic-oppression works in everyday life specifically in the areas that we study and work. AOP is then introduced with space to reflect on how we can take it into our studies, professional practices and personal lives. We'll also discuss the current research being done in Canada.

Holding space through music for Indigenous People: Spirit Singers

Holding space through music for Indigenous People: Spirit Singers

Oct 25, 7:10pm - Oct 25, 8:10pm

University of Toronto Student Life Programs & Services214 College StreetToronto, ON Map

Spirit Singers is a non-auditioned choral ensemble of U of T students who celebrate diversity and foster interfaith intercultural understanding through song. All are welcome.

This week's session will be lead by KYM GOUCHIE. The group will be honouring the murdered and missing Indigenous women, girls, 2S+, boys, and men.

With ancestral roots in the Lheidli T’enneh, Cree and Secwépemc Nations, KYM GOUCHIE is fostering change through her music and art. Her music brings awareness to First Nations and women’s issues, promoting reconciliation and authentic community engagement. Her stories are a testament to the human spirit, weaving together threads of her own journey from personal tragedy to triumph. Kym’s traditional hand drum, clean, crisp acoustic guitar and full-bodied voice make her a powerful force. Indigenous-folk, and country tones alongside poignant and inspirational lyrics capture the hearts of young and old — her genuine and heartfelt performances have a profound and sometimes emotional impact on their audience. Throughout the pandemic, Kym has found beauty in the ability to connect with people around the world with the click of a button. She sees herself as a bridge, connecting hearts and minds… reminding us that we’re all in this together.
