Présentation (en anglais seulement)

Join us for a conversation with Valerie Steeves and Jane Bailey about using arts-based and deliberative dialogue methods to engage young people in the digital policy-making process.

Surveillance, harassment and discrimination proliferate in our digitally networked environment, often with serious implications for young people and members of other equality-seeking communities. And yet, too often, public and policy discourses ignore or silence the voices of these communities. The eQuality Project aims to bring forward these voices by creating dialogue-facilitating opportunities for expression and engagement. In this seminar, eQuality’s co-leaders will share their experiences with and insights about two of the Project’s participation-facilitating strategies: a Youth Summit on Education Technologies and a series of art workshops with youth. 

 

This event is made possible thanks to the support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada and the Scotiabank Fund for AI and Society at the University of Ottawa.
