Afro-futurism: Activating our Visions is presented in partnership with OCAD Black Student Association as part of their Black History Month event series The New Vanguard. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
In this workshop, we dive into the ways our ancestors call us, and how to channel this energy to push our community forward.

Join us this Thursday with Sharrae Lyon for an afternoon of mediation, play, creativity, honouring our ancestors and our divine selves. ⁠⁠

Sharrae Lyon is a time traveling mystic existing in the nexus of the past, present possibilities and envisioning futures that empower us to remember our deep interwoven connection to the Earth and Cosmos. She’s a mover, visual artist, filmmaker, and healer who believes powerfully in humanity’s capacity to create new, more joyful forms of moving through life. Her film work Delayed Echoes (2018), Gaia’s Awakening (2014), Body as Technology (2015) are bodies of work that explores the intersections of neurodiversity, ancient wisdoms and modern contexts. Presently she launched a podcast entitled, Delayed Echoes – Divergence birthed from the short film. Her work has taken her to share both in workshop, creative writing and film screenings in Detroit’s Allied Media Conference, Black Artists and Activists Convergence at Dalhousie University, various workshops at University of Toronto, Carleton University and McGill University, the X Space, MTL. Her work has previously been supported by the OAC, Canada Council for the Arts and Inspirit Foundation.
