Community Engagement in COVID-19:Community of Practice and Resource Launch


Thursday May 20th 3:00-5:00 EST Join community-engaged practitioners in dialogue about the opportunities and tensions of adapting participatory, community-engaged approaches to online/remote settings. This event will involve opportunity for networking and informal discussion. Students, community-engaged practitioners, (community artists, community facilitators, participatory researchers) and those interested in the field are invited to join. Let’s learn from each other! We will also launch some illustrated web resources that help us think through remote/online facilitation with communities, as part of our Community-Engagement in COVID-19 research study. The event will be moderated by Dr. Sarah Switzer. Illustrations created by Andrea Vela Alarcón (@its.allegra). For registration questions, or to let us know about accessibility needs, please contact naima.raza@mail.utoronto.ca. For questions about the project, please contact sarah.switzer@utoronto.ca. This event is part of a larger study co-sponsored by the Youth Research Lab at OISE (@YouthResearchL), Gendering Adolescent AIDS Prevention at New College, Neighbourhood Arts Network, the Centre for Community Partnerships, and a group of community-engaged practitioners working across community and academic fields. The event is funded by the New College Initiatives Fund (NCIF) at New College, University of Toronto.
