Our Bodies Our Mind Event
Join us as we welcome back national organization Art With Impact for another unique event Our Bodies Our Minds (OBOM) on March 10 from 6-8:30 p.m. (doors open at 5:45 p.m.) in the Thomson House Ballroom.
This powerful free workshop uses theater and embodied activities to explore the realities of sexual violence and the impacts it can on survivors and communities. Discussions will also include how to reduce the many barriers a survivor/victim might experience when seeking support, how we can build compassion for survivors, partners and friends of survivors impacted by sexual violence. The theater presentation will be followed by a panel discussion highlighting students lived experiences and support resources on and off campus. Free food will be provided! Childcare will also be available during the event. Email osvrse [at] mcgill.ca to confirm a spot.
We welcome all students and McGill staff and faculty seeking a space to explore mental health and wellness, how to support survivors, and how we can connect with one another about this important topic. For more information on OBOM visit, https://www.artwithimpact.org/workshops/our-bodies-our-minds/

We would like to acknowledge that McGill is located on unceded lands which have traditionally served as a site of meeting and exchange among diverse indigenous peoples. The Kanien’kehà:ka/People of the Flint (Mohawk) who are a founding nation of the Haudenosaunee/People of the Longhouse (Iroquois) Confederacy are recognized as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters.
Thomson House is located in a historical building, and access, therefore, is limited by the nature of its physical structure. The building is accessible via ramp from the terrace adjacent to the side parking lot only, and access to the upper floors involves the use of an elevator that is small and provides no autonomous operation for individuals requiring it.
Gender neutral washrooms are located on the main floor.
The air we share: Scented products can trigger serious health reactions. Please help us maintain a healthy environment for all by not wearing scented products.
