WORK FOR ALL: Mobile-izing Anti-Racism
I will be participating on a panel which will explore ways in which mobile media engages citizens and affects change. The discussion will challenge perceptions of traditional approaches to “anti-racism education” and suggest exciting possibilities for engaging Canadians to confront racism using digital media and social networking tools.
Panelists include Dr. Judith Nicholson from Wilfrid Laurier University, multimedia artist Wayne Dunkley and Aisling Chin-Yee, line producer of the Work for All project. The evening will be moderated by Dr. Ayman Al-Yassini, Executive Director of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF).
This panel is conjunction with the National Film Board of Canada release of a new web project featuring free films over the course of ten weeks through its online film project, Work for All, which tackles the issue of racial discrimination in the workplace.
