Co-facilitated by Leave Out Violence (LOVE) BC's program director, Jennifer Sarkar, and a youth from LOVE's Leadership program, the workshop will introduce you to LOVE’s media arts-based approach to violence prevention and intervention. You will also have the opportunity to discuss creative methods that you use to engage students in your classroom, and think about opportunities to incorporate new techniques in your work.
