First priority: Reconnect with the love of the powerful young people of Cahoots, wear silly hats, say hi and share a bit about the past year plus a favourite memory from past Cahoots. Second priority: Talk about hope. Make some meaningful art inspired by the natural world and put it in the MAIL to the grassroots activists at the heart of The Wasteland Plan. Third priority: Learn to teleport.

Cahoots in Quarantine!

Cahoots Take Action Series

Hello everyone! As much as we tried and prayed and hoped, we realized that we just couldn’t do an in-person Cahoots Festival this year. But never fear, we are still striving to engage with you, our beloved community.

This year we are embarking on some new online adventures. The one coming soon is our Take Action Series. The first in this series is an online workshop lead by Jesson Reyes called “Migrant Rights During The Pandemic”. Join us on May 27 @ 7pm (est)

The Migrants Rights During the Pandemic is a call to action for migrants who face health and safety risks due to their immigration status. Jesson Reyes, managing director at Migrants Resource Centre Canada, will talk to us about what MRCC and Migrants Rights Network have been doing to put pressure on the government for permanent residency status for so called “temporary foreign workers,” who stay in Canada for years and work for unfair wages in dangerous jobs. Jesson will also be talking about COVID concerns amongst migrants during the pandemic, and the overall structure of why this systemic issue exists. Canada is lucky to have migrant workers, not the other way around. Join us as we advocate for those who farm the foods that end up on our tables, take care of our children, and do more essential jobs. The workshop will contain 15 minutes of speech, 5-10 minutes of Q&A, and 25 minutes of action.
