Action and Justice Creative Reflections

- 05:30 pm ~ 07:30 pm
Free

The Action and Justice Creative Reflections are an opportunity to engage with topics surrounding climate action and social justice through a creative outlet. This event entails four prompts for you to reflect on independently and then have the option to share. Feel free to mute yourself through this event and play some music, talk with friends, or enjoy the silence. Throughout the event we will be opening the floor for optional sharing and then continuing on with another prompt. By the end of the Action and Justice Creative Reflections you will have engaged with four different prompts that allow you to reflect and be creative while positioning yourself and identifying various factors that contribute to the topics we discuss. 

Use whatever media any like (paint, journaling, crayons, pastels, pencils, pens, clay, etc.) 

4 prompts will be used through the event with periods between for creativity!

KWIC News and Events

Community learning about global issues takes place through local dialogue and reflection at gatherings, workshops, panels, presentations, symposia, film screenings, and arts events that KWIC hosts throughout the year with many community partners.

People come away from KWIC events with new perspectives, a deeper understanding of complex world issues such as climate change, Indigenous rights, food security, gender equity, human rights, and global health.

KWIC organizes and supports regular gatherings like the Sustainable Development Goals' SDG Community Forums, the Global Community Network Roundtable, and International Women's Day.

Community Social Justice Events Calendar

Another way that KWIC supports local engagement is by providing a common calendar where community members can see what's coming up and where organizations and planners can coordinate activities.

Check calendar here.
