We are Re•Vision: The Centre for Art and Social Justice at the University of Guelph and we specialize in the use of visual, digital, and sensory methods. Re•Vision is an assemblage of social science research projects dedicated to exploring ways that marginalized and misrepresented communities can use the arts to advance social inclusion and justice by challenging stereotypes.
Re•Vision was founded in 2012 by Dr. Carla Rice, Canada Research Chair in Care, Gender, and Relationships in the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences at the University of Guelph.
We are currently working on arts-based research and engagement projects in three main areas of focus: disability and difference; body image and gender identity; and Indigenous art and education.
Re•Vision is also the home of REDLAB (Re-Visioning Differences Mobile Media Arts Lab), a mobile multi-media lab that uses arts-based methods to dismantle stereotypical understandings of difference that can create barriers to inclusion in society.
At the heart of many Re•Vision initiatives are our REDLAB digital storytelling workshops, where participants create 2 to 3 minute-long videos that pair audio recordings of personal narratives with visuals (photographs, short videos, artwork, and more).
