About this Event

A conversation on race, representation, and tokenism.

Join a community of BIPOC young people (black, Indigenous, people of colour) for a facilitated dialogue to explore race, representation, and tokenism. We will delve into how BIPOC representation in media, politics, and our personal and professional lives impact our lived experiences and wellbeing.

Date: October 2nd, 2019

Location: Blusson Hall 9655 , Simon Fraser University

Time: 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm (Light dinner is included)

Who is this for?

This event is only for young adults who are racialized. It is for people of colour who wants to explore mental health, culture, well-being, and family. Our intention is to create a space for people of colour to connect and converse.

Please note that the facilitators of this event are not mental health professionals and we can only share from our experience of doing research in this area and from our own experiences as people of colour. By creating this community, we hope to bring people together to share their own thoughts, experiences, and ideas so that we can grow, learn, and support one another.

What is GenAi and who are we?

GenAi is a project created by a group of SFU students and recent alumni who hope to create community among young people of colour (POC). We strive to explore the intersections in mental wellbeing, culture, family, and racialization by creating safe and brave spaces for dialogue with young POCs. We are interested in exploring how these intersections have shaped our challenges, resiliency, and lived experience - and how we can use dialogue to connect and heal.
