2022 Summer Cohort

This summer, the Arts Amplifier is running one collaborative, cohort-based applied research project. This project will employ a team of Arts masters or doctoral students who will work with a community partner on a project identified by that partner.

Each student team will meet with their community partner to determine the final approach taken on the project. You will divide the work according to their expertise and interests, and each person will complete a component of the project. The partner organization, as well as Amplifier staff, will provide ongoing mentorship and support.

Project Description

Women Transforming Cities (WTC) is a grassroots organization based in Vancouver working alongside equity-seeking genders to dismantle intersecting systems of oppression and transform where we live into places where everyone can belong, participate, and thrive. One such project that WTC leads is the Women Friendly Cities Challenge (WFCC): a living library of Wise Practices from around the world that helps make cities more gender-inclusive, and thus better for all.

To learn more, and to contribute to the shaping of the project, please RSVP for the April 12th Q&A.
