Waterloo @ the Intersections is the first in a series of events that aims to empower participants to share their thoughts on a specified topic through 10-minute performances. On Wednesday, March 22, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. six individual and group performers will tell their stories through poetry, dance, song, and personal narrative. The event will be rounded out with talks from Fallon Farinacci, speaker, survivor, and advocate for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls; and TK Pritchard, SHORE Centre Executive Director.
Jazz Fitzgerald, Student Equity and Community manager in the Student Success Office (SSO), developed the series in partnership with the Waterloo Undergraduate Student Union, Graduate Student Union and Athletics and Recreation, to address and name the shift students have experienced in their ability to gather and feel like they belong. “The Student Equity and Community team, along with the entirety of the SSO, wants to help create spaces where community and belonging can flourish. We believe that an event like this is one that supports this co-creation of community and belonging; and we are so grateful to be in collaboration with others to bring this space to fruition.”
Waterloo @ the Intersections: On Belonging will be held in the Black and Gold room in the Student Life Centre (SLC). Doors open at 6 p.m. with performances starting at 6:30 p.m. Space is limited and registration for the event is encouraged. Light refreshments will be served.
