An Interactive Art Exhibit About Body Positivity
This UofMosaic Campus Dialogue featured a student-led discussion on dismantling body-image prejudice as they explored the ways that self-image is shaped by multiple identity markers, including race, sexuality, gender, culture, and faith.
Some questions we engaged with during this event included:
👉 How does social media facilitate negative body image in our communities?
👉 How do individuals with intersectional or marginalized identities experience body image challenges?
👉 How can government policies, organizations, and universities better address the issue of body image and better support youth?
This event took place on Wednesday, March 29 at Wymilwood Lounge, 150 Charles St West. It included performances, refreshments, and creating art together. Attendants were able to take home a painting, a love letter to themselves, and a photobooth for pictures to remember the night.
