Harmony Movement: Change Through Equity

Working with LIFT instructors, Harmony Movement organized editing workshops over the summer in and around Crescent Town, Rexdale and Jane/Finch. In an intensive program, youth worked with a facilitator to create visual stories about the issues and experiences they face in their neighbourhood.

Change Through Equity
Change through Equity will bring youth from diverse backgrounds together using film-making/digital storytelling as a social development tool to inspire youth to develop their own solutions for change in their neighbourhoods. This film documentation will be showcased at the end of the program and shared with the local community offering an opportunity to facilitate discussions on the marginalization that many cultural youth face on a day to day basis.  At the end of the showcase, participants will be presented with certificates to acknowledge their commitment and leadership in promoting diversity and creating social change in their neighbourhoods.

Harmony Movement
Harmony Movement was formed in 1994 as a not-for-profit organization to combat inter-racial intolerance and to confront the “us versus them” attitude which was prevalent in Canadian society at that time. Our mandate is to promote diversity and to combat all forms of discrimination that act as social and cultural barriers to individuals' full participation in society. We empower youth to become leaders for social change by implementing diversity education in schools and communities.
