Not so long ago, the NOISE project was a hope, an idea with no people. No people = no NOISE. Over the last nine months, students from Emery Collegiate and York University have worked together with Social Work Faculty members and alumni to bring NOISE to life!
In small groups, what we call “pods”, NOISE fellows have developed new relationships – supporting and learning from each other, and collaboratively researching, developing, designing and implementing social action projects that address issues that matter to them.
On April 29, we celebrate NOISE and the people who have breathed life into an idea. Please join us for our inaugural year-end event, A Place for All: Living, Learning, Building Community, [link to http://aplaceforall-eorg.eventbrite.ca/#] and become inspired by our NOISE-makers as they share the outcomes of their projects and reflect on the possibilities that are generated when youth, university students, professors, and alumni work together.
A Place for All: Living, Learning, Building Community features a keynote address by Rahul K. Bhardwaj, President and CEO, Toronto Community Foundation, performances by Samba Kidz, special guests, and highlights from the NOISE’s pilot year. Join us and experience the music in NOISE for Social Change.
All are welcome but space is limited. RSVP here [link to http://aplaceforall-eorg.eventbrite.ca/#]
