Header Image for Disorientation 2017


DisOrientation will immerse you in social justice, activism, action and knowledge. It's about learning to unlearn our assumptions, engaging in thought-provoking discussion and art, and rediscovering our relationships to each other.

All events are free.

The organisers strive to create accessible and inclusive spaces for all its members. If you have any accessibility needs, please email equity@rsuonline.ca as soon as possible.
