How do we use 'music for healing' in a classroom setting?

“Now that we know; how do we move forward with an equitable music education?” 

As a diverse group of educators, we know the challenges that institutions face to help every person feel a sense of belonging.  As musicians, we know that music can be used as a healing balm. However, folks have also experienced the pain points that come from wanting to belong in music, but not finding their community. How do we build strong music programs that include our diverse knowledge and abilities? In this presentation, Hannah will deliver insights from their two-year journey as an equity consultant and faculty member at Humber College, in Toronto, calling on knowledge gathered from Indigenous, human rights, and anti-oppression frameworks.
