Prof. Lin Fang receives SSHRC Partnership Engagement Grant

 

Prof. Lin Fang, the Factor-Inwentash Chair in Children’s Mental Health, received research funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) on a community-based research partnership between Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls club and the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto.

The research project, entitled “This is My Regent Park: Perspectives from Young People”, will use arts-based, participatory methods to understand young people’s place-based knowledges and their relationships to their neighbourhood of Regent Park, as the neighbourhood is experiencing the first mass social housing redevelopment in Canada.
