Animator – “Equality in my Community” project

Lysa has been working with us since May 2017.

She is the animator for the “L’Égalité dans ma communauté” project that aims to form a mixed group of 15 youth from Côte-des-Neiges who will work together on an artistic project related to different thematics such as: Sexual/Gender stereotypes, Corporal image and Violence against women. Once completed, this project will be communicated to the community.

Lysa already completed two DEC: a technic in Recreational Intervention and the other in Arts. She’s also completing two certificats, one in Educative Intervention in the Community and Family fields and the other in Feminist Studies at l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM).

Lysa’s intervention approach is taking different factors in consideration (gender, cultural background, religion, age, handicaps, …), a way for her to fight discriminations. Her social implication touches different spheres such as Environment, Feminism and Diversity of sexual/gender identities.
