  • are finding their voice, choosing their words and naming their world on their terms
  • respect and uphold the rights of each of us to do likewise
  • willing to help create and hold space so that each of us can be who we are and to feel we can include ourselves in the fun.

Who are we?

Canada grew out of rebellion, a whole bunch of them – people throwing off the ideas others had about who to be and how to live; walking out and walking on – deciding for themselves, and together.
We’re carrying on that tradition. sq logoThe is a collective of individuals who are interested in co-creating a world in which we can each be who we are – free of others’ ideas about who or what they wish we would be.
And we’re interested in doing what we can do today.

    I’d like to do some spoken word for this night, on mental health. Let me know if there are any spots available. It would probably only be about 15 min.
