Kisîwâtisôwin is a michif word that means kindness. Kisîwâtisôwin workshops offer support to self-identified Indigiqueers (Indigenous & 2SLGBTQ+ individuals) to deepen their relationship to self, community and creation.
This four-part workshop series is offered in partnership with the Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Centre (SVPC) and First Nations House, from an Indigenous perspective.
This program is open to U of T undergraduate and graduate students who self-identify as both Indigenous and 2SLGBTQ+.
How The Program Works
Sessions are hosted by clinicians and SVPC partners on Blackboard Collaborate on a monthly basis.
