Be part of the diverse youth voices to learn and unpack social justice issues through different aspects of culture backgrounds!
Join a team of facilitators to dialogue around indigenous experiences and those of recent and ancestral migration journey. Inquiry discussions include: land history, identity & belonging, racialization, diaspora, and breaking down racial stereotype / bias / discrimination.
Explore how to talk about social justice in other languages that you speak. Facilitators will create a multilingual learning space to support high-school participants in this intercultural learning opportunity.
Dialogues are facilitated in English, while all input in any languages are valued. We welcome and encourages participants who are new to living in Canada, which include but not limited to newcomers who are immigrants, refugees and international students.
About the Organizer
Little Lantern Cultural and Heritage Society www.littlelantern.org
Little Lantern is a grassroots group that hosts youth-centred, youth-driven and youth-led projects that value Hua-Chinese youth’s voices and creative potentials. We are based on the unceded Coast Salish Territory of Vancouver and we work with high-school youth identified with diverse Hua-Chinese heritages and experiences. Our capacity-building model creates a safe and inclusive multilingual space for youth to explore their cultural belongings and personal identities. We believe in the strength-based approach of empowering youth to build bridges with peers and all community members.
