COLLECTIVE RECKONING is a joint project between UNIT/PITT and ARTS ASSEMBLY in the wake of socially driven calls to address sexual harassment, violence and trauma that disproportionately impacts womxn identified and non-binary folks. Through a series of open forums, discussions and resource sharing, we hope to not only tangibly address these issues within our creative community, but to foster long-term accountability and change.
In response to the voices of our first session, the second will be led by community members and CR facilitators so we may concretely identify the changes we would like to see and our ability to instigate that change. With a focus on our collective voice, Session Two will act as a requisite to determine the resources our community desires and to ensure the changes we require are met.
COLLECTIVE RECKONING is a process initiated by us, but which belongs to the community.
We would like to acknowledge that this event takes place on the on the traditional territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
We would like to thank Canada Council for the Arts, British Columbia Arts Council, City of Vancouver and Vancity for their support.
