Safe Cyphers Workshop Series

Safe Cyphers Workshop Series

When: Sun Feb 1, 8, 15, 22 2:00pm – 6:00pm

Safe Cyphers is a series of workshops that will train community leaders and potential leaders of various black popular cultural forms, including but not limited to emceeing, dancing and visual art, in the art of workshop facilitation.

By using resources such as rap lyrics, poetry, funk music and more, participants will move through different mediums on a journey through black and POC narratives within our culture.

The Safe Cypher series is a unique workshops series that:

– Helps develop a network of artists that have a better understanding of racism and other oppressions e.g. sexism or transphobia
– Helps community leaders and potential leaders learn how to handle real-life situations of oppression, especially within emotionally charged workshop environments
– Helps community leaders and potential leaders create safer workshops that service their community better
– Helps build creative capacity within black and POC artist communities.

The Safe Cypher series will be closed off with a final public showcase that reflects the knowledge that was produced through the workshop.


The program will be running on 2-6pm Feb 1, 8, 15, 22 and a final performance on the afternoon/evening of Feb 28 or Mar 1.
