Imagine That: A BIPOC Youth Guide to Navigating Teenage Identity is a free, virtual, national conference that will take place Friday, August 13th to Saturday, August 14th 2021.
Imagine That welcomes Black, Indigenous, and other cisgendered girls, trans and gender nonconforming, and two spirit folks of colour from the ages of 13-16 all across Canada.
The title Imagine That stems from Toni Morrison’s essay “The Future of Time,” and her Sarah Lawrence commencement address, which both note the importance of “dream[ing] the world as it ought to be.” In hosting this event, our objective is to encourage participants to imagine beyond their current reality through learning the language necessary to articulate their experiences and positionality within systems, and create new ones.
Participants will be able to make their own schedules by choosing the workshop sessions that are most interesting and relevant to them! That way, you can make the session times work for you and join at your convenience.
Spots are limited, and are first-come, first-served. Join us in learning more about ourselves and each other, register today:
