Bricks & Glitter

Community Engagement | Capacity Building | Strategic Planning

May 2020 – Present

Reflex (℅ Darian Razdar) has played a vital role in the 2SQTBIPOC arts & culture festival, Bricks & Glitter, and its pivot to an accessible hybrid programming model and laying the foundations for the collective’s forthcoming year-long visioning process.

Strategic co-direction and implementation of a week-long Community Visioning engagement program aimed at gauging changing needs wrought by COVID-19. Engagements adopted a broad definition of accessibility, using both asynchronous and synchronous engagement channels and opportunities for non-digital feedback. Community Visioning foregrounded a safe and successful festival.

Bricks & Glitter identified capacity building as a core need for its upcoming year of Strategic Visioning. Through a co-leadership process, Darian built capacity by scaffolding an emergent facilitation model and a digital capacity building plan. Our grant writing for Bricks & Glitter successfully secured the Ontario Arts Council COVID Response grant.

In preparation for Bricks & Glitter’s year-long Strategic Visioning process, Darian led Needs Assessments, developed an access-centred digital capacity plan, shaped an emerging circular mentorship model, co-designed the Strategic Visioning process and project budgets with collective organizers.

Let’s build together.
