MITACS Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Regent Park Film Festival, Archive/Counter-Archive and The Regent Park Film Festival, Toronto, Canada. Deadline: 5 November 2021.
Archive/Counter-Archive and The Regent Park Film Festival are pleased to announce a competition for a 1-year MITACs Accelerate Post-Doctoral Fellowship position hosted by York University and The Regent Park Film Festival. In this opportunity the candidate will coordinate the Regent Park Film Festival’s Regent Park Made Visible Project as well as engage in visual research on the history of the Regent Park neighborhood and its communities. Regent Park has undergone a revitalization process, changing rapidly from a low-income to a mixed-income neighborhood accompanied by changes to community demographics and urban geographies. The successful candidate will coordinate a digital media arts project where artists will engage with visual source material (archival footage of Regent Park as well as narrative forms set in Regent Park) to respond and create original works (short films) for digital and in-person presentation at the 20th anniversary of the Regent Park Film Festival in 2022. The candidate’s own proposed project will engage in visual research both within and outside of institutional archives and will explore themes that are pertinent to Regent Park today: gentrification, immigration and belonging, community building, racial justice, housing and income security.
Community Building Practices that Attend to Difference, with Taos Institute Associate Janet Newbury, Taos Institute/Positivity Strategist Podcast Episode 10.
How can community building practices be done in a way that attend to difference, and are genuinely committed to consider power relations and how they play out when working amidst differences? Community building comes with honor, privilege, and immense responsibility. Most challenging is to respectfully know when and how to show up, when is it useful to step back, create space, or bring someone along.
Janet Newbury, Ph.D., lives on Tla’amin territory, in British Columbia, Canada. She is a director on the board of the Powell River Division of Family Practice, a consultant who works on community-based initiatives, and an instructor in the School of Child and Youth Care at the University of Victoria. Her research and practice have focused on fostering the structural conditions that contribute to wellness for children, youth, and families – with particular interest in decolonization efforts.
