U of T x Regent Park Focus

A Collaborative Media and Research Initiative

 

The students in Professor Aditi Mehta‘s course INI430H1: Youth, Arts, & Engagement in Cities have collaborated with a cohort of teenage Muslim women, collectively known as the Divas Girls, living in Regent Park. Together, they create media projects about Regent Park and the lived experiences of its residents.

 

Their mission: “We believe that bringing together university students and Regent Park youths creates a unique environment for learning about our social world and social processes. Often in universities, entrenched social norms and established institutional structures silence different types of knowledge. We aim to shake that paradigm.”

 

Check out the projects from students enrolled in INI430H1 in Winter 2020:
