" Considering Simon Fraser University is one of the few Canadian universities that have had students participate in the fellowship, I feel honoured to represent Canada this year. I look forward to learning new skills on how to make a greater social impact within my community. I am also excited to meet with other students worldwide in hopes that we can inspire one another to create a feminist forward, inclusive, and just world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Cloud C.A.R.E Project
Cloud C.A.R.E (Community Art Reaching Everyone) is a project which aims to destigmatize mental health issues by combining art-making with therapy-like group sessions. Founded by six Simon Fraser University students and one teacher, they started during the COVID-19 pandemic making collaborative art and posting it to a website. The group has since split, however, a few of the co-founders are keeping the vision alive by expanding the collaborative art portion to in-person sessions where they do arts and crafts while talking about our mental health.
