We provide a safe and supportive space to build an anti-oppression community through sharing, learning, and teaching. We value all experiences and offer the resources necessary to advocate for yourself and others.

About Us

As a centre we are committed to constantly re-accessing and adapting in order to better host an anti oppressive space. In order to do this we commit to consistent framework of evaluating our practices. We welcome critical feedback so that we may better practice being an intersectional feminist, queer positive, trans positive, decolonizing, anti-racist space. It is vital that the community recognize it as such and feel welcome.

Art of resistance

We use arts and creative projects to create discourse around important social justice issues such as racism, misogyny, reproductive rights, homophobia, transphobia, police brutality, and more.

Check out our blog for recent projects or come into the centre to discover and volunteer for current or future projects.
