Welcome to Narratives of Color, a project of bringing awareness to questions of race and racial discrimination in Calgary, organized by the University of Calgary students, Neha Bhatia and Dušan Nikolić.
This project is funded as a part of the LRC Graduate Fellowship that was instituted in 2019 to support students from the graduate programs in Languages, Literatures and Cultures and in Linguistics in implementing a community outreach project of their own design.
This project aims to raise awareness about the racial issues in Calgary, and Canada, in general, by discussing the topic of race, and by enabling participants to share their stories about race. The project involves two online (Zoom) workshops. Workshops are open to everyone. In the second workshop, we are planning to focus especially on the perspectives and experience of Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities. Participants of the workshops will receive a certificate of attendance and some great prizes! If you would like to participate or if you know someone who might be interested in participating, please register here, and share this project with your community. If you have any questions, please contact us. We appreciate your support! Thank you!
