Presented as part of the Theology in the City 2019 conference.

Landscape of Hope is a unique, evidence-based intervention that magnifies youth narratives as they pertain to building resilience against racism, discrimination, prejudice and cyber bullying. The digital art initiative is youth-led and designed to empower them with critical digital literacy skills and social media tools to create cutting-edge multimedia performances and installations that describe their experiences with hate, discrimination and cyber bullying. Our aim is to implement and evaluate a sustainable, multi-sectoral, culturally-relevant, youth-led approach to creating media-based narratives that accurately reflect youths’ lived experiences, with the ultimate objective of reducing instances of discrimination.
