We are Re•Vision: The Centre for Art and Social Justice at the University of Guelph

The Re•Vision Centre for Art and Social Justice is an arts methodology research hub at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada that investigates the power of the arts, and especially story, to open up conversations about systemic (rather than individualized) injustices in health care, education, and the arts sectors. Our driving purpose is to support and equip academics, artists, activists and storytellers from justice-seeking communities seeking to shift misrepresentations with cutting edge technological tools and methodologies.

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. Through REDLAB we have developed an innovative digital storytelling method to uncover the social/cultural dynamics of exclusionary attitudes and actions and to identify new pathways for change with wide-reaching policy implications.
