HARC & NCCIH Partner on Hearts-based Education and Anticolonial Learning Project

HARC is excited and proud to be partnering with The National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health to support health care professionals to address anti-Indigenous racism, practice in anti-oppressive ways, and foster cultural humility. The Hearts-based Education and Anticolonial Learning (HEAL) project will promote cultural safety and recognize Indigenous knowledge and anti-colonial approaches in health service provision.

“We need to remember that achieving optimal health has always involved both the arts and sciences. We need to remember that transformational change, including much-needed anti-colonial change in health care, requires shifts in both feelings and thoughts. It’s about head and heart work. We’re excited to put arts and humanities to work in the service of cultural humility and anti-oppression.”
