The ACADSA Hear/d Residency is a pilot peer support project developed by the ACAD Students’ Association. The Hear/d Residency program focuses on the central theme of resilience, relating to the journey of mental health issues currently experienced by many post-secondary students. Drawing on this theme, the Hear/d Residency program invites participants to explore concerns that are affecting post-secondary students in a creative and innovative way. Through group discussions, reflection, individual studio time, critiques, and workshops this residency provides a platform for a diversity of creative activity that aims to raise awareness of the issues that are affecting the health and well-being of post-secondary students, while also connecting members from different disciplines in the college.
