Description

CONNECT WITH COMMUNITY.

FIND YOUR VOICE.

OWN YOUR POWER.

The experiences of young Black women can be characterized by the influences of multiple power disparities that include race, gender, age, and social status. The Young Black Women’s Project will explore issues that impact self esteem and connection to community, viewed through an intersectional lens that considers the interplay of disparate forces in the lives of young Black women.

The Young Black Women’s Project is an eight-part trans-inclusive workshop series open to black women aged 15 to 34. Participants will use dance, writing, spoken word poetry, visual art, and other creative mediums to explore issues such as trauma, relationships, mental health, and self-image.

Graduates from the program will gain increased confidence to: communicate, advocate, negotiate for personal and community health and well-being, and serve as effective leaders in social and professional networks.

They will then democratically choose a selection of their final products to be published in an original book that will be available for purchase on Amazon. This publication will be widely distributed across the region, and will serve to shine a light on the voices of young Black Women in Peel. Every participant will also be provided with a free hard copy of the book to share with friends and family.

Learn more about yourself and your community through art, build lasting relationships, refine tools of self expression, amplify your voice, and see your work in print.

Sign up by September 15th to reserve a spot for opportunity, to take place weekly between September 25th to November 22nd.

The Young Black Women's Project is an initiative founded by the Peel HIV/AIDS Network (PHAN) and made possible by a stellar team comprised of PHAN staff members, community partners, peer leaders, and community members who share our commitment to providing safe spaces for young Black women to explore important issues.

This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Brampton Caledon Community Foundation, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast.
