Play • 31 min

On this episode of RTNT, Jerry hosts as we dive deep into The Toronto Writers Collective. The TWC was founded in 2012 to encourage voice and illuminate undiscovered strength in Toronto’s most vulnerable communities. 

First up, RTNT’s Julie sits down with Erdine Hope, a TWC Facilitator to gain insight into the inner workings of the workshops. Next, Luis speaks with Roberta Taylor, a longtime member and a newly trained facilitator. Roberta also shares a few wonderful pieces she has created through participating in the TWC workshops, with a bit of sound design by the RTNT team. Our final interview is with Dr. Kelly McShane, a professor and researcher from Ryerson University. Emily and Dr. McShane explore the role of measuring the effectiveness of community based mental health programs. As always, immense thanks to our guests and everyone who helped us put together this episode.
