This collaborative event aims to share social innovation research and partnerships at Durham College and identify challenges and opportunities for further collaboration. Attendees will learn about social innovation activities at the college and how they can become involved. The event will provide space for the creation of new partnerships and synergistic ways to engage with a variety of participants, including service providers, researchers, community agencies and students and how applied research can be used to identify ways to address societal issues of concern.
Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and carried out in partnership with the Regional Municipality of Durham and the City of Oshawa, this event will include an overview of current Social Impact Hub applied research projects followed by a panel discussion, delving into a variety of social challenges and potential areas where applied research and social innovation can intersect to define a path forward. Participants will have an opportunity to collaborate in breakout groups to further discuss challenges they see and potential solutions that leverage socially innovative ideas.

Yesterday is Melting encapsulates a relentless pursuit of public agency in the face of colonial power, systemic oppression, and increasing genesis amnesia. Each work implicates audiences to acknowledge how we observe and participate in history. Sandy Williams IV strikes a balance in tension—interplaying the untouchable and the malleable, the passage of time and the infallible memory, the transparent and the concealed.
Additional works by ANTIESTABLISHED (Kate Turner, Warren Jones, and Williams), Mariana Parisca, and Monsieur Zohore respond to Williams’ engagement in the emancipation of public space. Together their disparate works unravel common structures of power and repression in the Americas.
