Ribbon Rouge Foundation (RRF) organized an arts-based approach to anti-racism funded by ARAC's funding and the City of Edmonton's commitment to creating a racism-free Edmonton.
The RRF ArtSpace Theatre Team presented excerpts of their interactive play "This is Canada," created through workshops with students in the LINC Program at Norquest College. The artists selected recurring themes from the stories workshop participants shared about their experience settling in Canada. The interactive play consisted of characters who found themselves in crisis and needed the audience's help to solve the problems that arose.
Over 50 participants attended the event at city hall, including Mayor Amarjeet Sohi and MP Blake Desjarlais. Organizations that participated or RRF partnered in the workshop also shared their experiences before the performance.
