ART Anti-Racism Response Training

The Anti-Racism Response Training (A.R.T.) program, developed by Dr. Ishu Ishiyama, uses a witness-centred approach to disrupting racism. This highly interactive and experiential Canadian-based program will introduce participants to the historical legacies of racism in this country, provide an overview of key definitions and concepts such as microaggressions, systemic racism, white fragility and implicit bias, and offer tools to develop and strengthen active witnessing skills. The series is designed to be relevant to the audience and encourages participants to shift from being frozen or silent bystanders to becoming active witnesses. In a safe and supported forum, participants will practice how they can respond in order to disrupt racism and build safer and more inclusive communities.
