Coco Collective is one of the collaborators for a funded project under the Ontario Black Youth Action Plan. Miss Coco has designed a culturally responsive dance mentorship program as part of the Window of Opportunity project with A Different Booklist Cultural Centre. See our Artistic Director pictured with Ontario's Minister of Children and Youth Services, Michael Couteau at the past Marketplace event.
Miss Coco presented along with Coco Collective members at TDSB's Beginning Teachers Equity Conference at Ontario Institute of Educational Studies, University of Toronto. Critical dialogue and cultural arts engaged new educators under the anti-racism and anti-oppression themes.
