Speaking Engagements

Youth Activist Forum @ Carleton University

This past weekend I was at the Youth Activist Forum, put together by Citizens with Disabilities — Ontario (CWD-O). Presenting a workshop on my webcomic and creative resistance and a keynote on my trip to Ottawa in ’08, it was great spending time with some young activists out to change the world. A huge thanks to Chrissy, Dale and Erika for inviting me to take part in this great event and a warm hello to all my new friends from the conference. You can see a comic strip I put together about the conference here.
