ASHE: Arts, Spirituality, Healing and Embodiment
Virtual Forum Session
This session is part of the broader 2021 Virtual Forum, Looking Within: Anti-Black Racism and the Gender-Based Violence Sector in Canada.
The Forum runs Jan 18, 19, 20 and brings together the voices and insights of Black activists, advocates, academics, artists, and service providers from across Canada for a series of dialogues about complicity and accountability in the GBV sector on issues of anti-Black racism.
This interactive workshop will offer a simple embodied practice for healing through the Arts. The facilitators, Ravyn Wngz (Co-Founder, ILL NANA/DiverseCity Dance Company) and Kyisha Williams (Actor, Director, Model, and Health Promoter), will share experiences of their embodied practices. The hope is to inspire a conversation that will open participants to new ways of healing and activism, which address anti-Black racism at its core. Allowing participants to reckon with their responsibility to eradicating white supremacy and anti-Black racism. Moderated by Esther Enyolu,
Executive Director, Women’s Multicultural Resource & Counselling Centre of Durham.
