In this workshop, participants will have a chance to explore the rapidly-growing methodology of Research-Creation. We will discuss the common styles of Research-Creation, how they are practiced across different fields, how they can differ inside and outside of the university, and what unique opportunities this methodology brings to the table. This workshop is grounded in a Black perspective and centers the opportunities, considerations, and challenges that can come up for Black Researchers as well as research done with and/or for Black communities.

She is the founding coordinator of The Black Perspectives Initiative at Concordia University and a long-standing affiliate of the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS). In her most recent degree, she explored ways of unpacking the complex racial and lingual dynamics of Montreal with youth, through a research-creation project called Understanding Blackness in Montreal: A Toolkit for Engaging Youth in Critical Dialogue Around Race, which led to the intergenerational Mapping Blackness in Montreal project she facilitates. As this project grows, she hopes to take it on tour across Canada and foster connections between Black Canadian communities.
