This month, members of the Black Healing Centre and Community Healing Days teams will speak on creating supportive, community-based opportunities for transformative healing.

About the projects: 

  • The Black Healing Centre provides an accessible space for intergenerational, culturally relevant, and Afro-positive mental health care. Their “Healing through Art Days” project  curates monthly, safer healing spaces for Black people to help alleviate social isolation, and symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder.  

  • The Community Healing Days team offers monthly health clinics that provide alternative and traditional therapies at low cost or free of charge to vulnerable and marginalized communities. The team’s long-term goal is to mobilize change within the provincial public healthcare system, so that hands-based healing practices can be available to all.

This event is open to all, register here or drop by if you are on campus.

Bring your own lunch or come and snack on what we have!
