CANADIAN MUSLIM MENTAL HEALTH CONFERENCE WORKSHOP

THRIVIN': The Art of Community Resilience

This interactive workshop will explore community resilience through an inclusive and anti-oppression lens using poerty and performance. We will engage in discussions and activities that address mental health as it relates to identity, empathy, community building, and dismantling stigma. Join us to envision new ways of THRIVIN'!

About the facilitators:

Sakinah Hasib is a 27 year old Afro-Trinidadian, Native American, multi-ethnic Muslim woman, born and raised on Turtle Island. She is an artist who uses her writing and voice to speak up for truth and justice. Striving towards her role as a healer she centres her learning around holistic health and wellness, healing from trauma, mental illness as spiritual gifts, and is focusing on grounding herself in her own healing and spiritual practices.


Timaj Garad is a diasporic Ethiopian multi-disciplinary storyteller, using poetry, theatre, and music to bring her stories to life. Her art is auto-biographical, working at the intersections of a black Muslim woman challenging injustice, unearthing truths, and healing. As an award-winning Artist, Timaj Garad has graced over 200 stages and facilitated several arts-based workshops. She is a co-founder of the Kitchener-Waterloo Poetry Slam (KWPS) - Kitchener-Waterloo's first slam poetry organization. In 2012, Timaj was awarded the City of Waterloo's Top 40 under 40 award for artistic excellence and community leadership. Timaj believes in the transformative power of the arts to meaningfully engage in capacity building to strengthen communities.
