Youth Sexual Health Research Symposium 2019




Youth Sexual Health Research Symposium 2019
40 Willcocks St, Toronto, ON M5S 1C6, Canada
The goal of the symposium is to bring together community youth (ages 16-35 who are part of a youth group/organization, not attending University, or would like to get connected with people of similar passions) and university students to share their research and artistic pieces on youth sexual health. In the current political climate, this year's symposium will provide a crucial forum for youth asserting their right for progressive sexual health education. During the symposium, students, youth, academics, policy makers, and community members working in or interested in the field of youth sexual health will be given the opportunity to network and engage in each other’s work. We encourage students from all disciplines and community youth to present research "in progress," test out ideas for a thesis or dissertation proposal, or present original research or artistic pieces.

Inkstuds Interview



Inkstuds interview with Robin McConnell. Robin says:
"Fiona Smyth has been making great important comics for the past 30 plus years and most of them can be found in the recent collection from Koyama Press, Somnambulance. It’s an amazing way to get a deep understanding of one of Canada’s important pioneering small press cartoonists. Her work is radical, engaging and vibrant. I am really happy to have had the time to talk to Fiona about her comics appreciative to have this book in my hands."
