Voice Project​: Challenging Systemic Racism 

In 2020, TCK launched the Voice Project to explore Anti-Black Racism within the school system. Using an arts-based approach and interactive puppetry, we facilitated meaningful conversations with racialize children in the Greater Toronto Area. Our arts-based approach allows us to tackle the serious subject matter of systemic racism. We create a safe and comfortable space where children can share their experiences of discrimination.

Our Approach

Best Seller

Our day starts with a welcome and introduction to our Puppet Pals. The puppets will provide an overview of the session with the children. Our artist facilitator will then ask the participants to open their art kits. The artists will facilitate a customizable art experience with the students while asking them about their experiences with racism in the educational system. A visual recording artist will then capture the statements in a visual representation. The session will last for 90 minutes. 

 

Following the session, a report is then submitted to the school with any relevant findings and recommendations.

Our Results

 In our recent intervention, we worked with children over 6 weeks to develop art-based projects exploring their feelings.  These projects included a comic strip, a animated short film and the creation of a new puppet character.
