About the Event
Our organization, African Art & Cultural Community Contributor CCC Inc. (AACCCS), a Black-Led, Black-Serving and Black-Oriented organization was founded 10 years ago to bridge the gap between people of African descent and their communities within the Canadian context.
Supported by the Public Health Agency of Canada (inc.), we are engaging Persons of African Descent in BC to understand the impact of the current pandemic response on the community and to develop an advisory crisis management plan that can be adopted during future widespread emergencies. It is our hope that as we utilize the iterative stages of design thinking, we develop innovative solutions that address future crises in ways that build a stronger, more resilient, and connected community.
The workshop is to hold in person; consequently, we have a limited capacity.
We will be providing participants with food, drinks, and $100 as honorarium. We will also reimburse the cost of transportation for those coming by the ferry.
