WORK FOR ALL: Mobile-izing Anti-Racism
Tuesday March 23rd at 7pm

150 John St, at Richmond St W, near Osgoode subway station, Toronto

FREE

This month, the National Film Board of Canada releases 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. Join us at the NFB Mediatheque for a big-screen presentation and sneak preview of some of the films to be released over the coming weeks, and an inspiring panel discussion on digital media and the use of mobile communication to address racism.

The panel will explore how citizens use mobile media to affect change, now and historically. The panel will offer exciting alternatives to traditional notions of anti-racism education, and suggest new possibilities for engaging Canadians to confront racism using digital media and social networking tools.

Panellists include:

  • Dr. Judith Nicholson from Wilfrid Laurier University
  • Multimedia artist Wayne Dunkley
  • 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. Filmmaker Elizabeth St. Philip will also be in attendance.

Space is limited - please RSVP by emailing [email protected]

Work for All is produced by the National Film Board of Canada with the Participation of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.

The NFB Mediatheque is located at 150 John St, at Richmond St W, near Osgoode subway station.
