Abstract

This qualitative inquiry focuses on exploring youth subjectivities in relation to a curriculum focused on diversity issues. This curriculum is housed within a community camp called Youth Combating Intolerance. Using a unique methodology called pedagartistry, the youth visually narrated their experiences being young activists and the challenges that run alongside. Drawing on ideas of becoming, multiplicity and reflexivity, the youth described a spectrum of experiences relevant to youth, educators and those invested in practicing from an anti-oppressive praxis.
