LIVE Discussion of Frosh Week & SKETCH Community Arts Initiative

Monday September 23, 2013:

York Community Report: Andrew Borzic speaks to members of the Students for Safer Spaces Collective, an initiative inspired by a class project. The collective began with the concern the students have with the university’s approach to student safety on campus. The three students explain what their goals are as a collective, and what students can do to change the stigmas attached to campus safety.

Feature Interview: Joanna Beaton and Meghan MacRae discuss the ramifications of the traditional frosh week LIVE with Victoria Barnett from OPIRG York. Given recent controversies over traditional frosh activities, OPIRG’s DisOrientation Week offers an alternative to those parties and outings, and a bridge between campus and academic life.

Independent Arts Report: Leana Lattanzio speaks to Rudy from SKETCH, a community arts initiative for street-involved and homeless youth, as well as those living on the margins. SKETCH is in the middle of building a new space and expanding. They discuss SKETCH’s process, how they work and what resources they provide for youth to create their art.
