HAPPY JUNETEETH

Let's fire up the BBQ with Rei Pierre

Tune in on our Instagram account @ocadustudentwellness to celebrate Juneteenth with Rei on the Que' for a Cook and Chat Virtual Party. Show up for as little and as long as you want. Let's come together to celebrate Juneteenth safely! 

Juneteeth is a day of celebration which is gaining more recognition across Turtle Island. Beginning 1865, it's the oldest nationally recognized day to commemorate the end of slavery in the USA. The day is much more than celebrating the end of slavery - the day emphasizes education, achievement, and jubilation.

This event is part of the Student Wellness Centre's PHOENIX RISING initiative to support joy and wellness for black OCADU students by black students.

For this event, allies can show up and support, learn more about Juneteeth independently, like or share promotion on Instagram. Social Media Accounts will be blocked at the discretion of the Student Wellness Centre for promoting white supremacy, racist comments, and or microaggressions. Good vibes only.

Natalie Mark and co-curators Yasmin Emery and Samiya Karim deliver a new flavour of an exhibition in the Learning Zone Gallery - House of Oriental: Northern Style on through May 27. Emery describes House of Oriental: Northern Style, as an exhibition of works exploring pan-Asian Canadian foods: recipes developed from hybridity, alienation, assimilation, survival, and poverty. The works in this exhibition aim to explore not the most “authentic” or “real” ethnic foods, but to present the foods and experiences born out of the land’s rich (or poor) newcomer history. The exhibition includes works ranging from paintings to photography as well as a recipe book, compiling the foods behind the art. Featuring artwork by:
