ENACTING INTERSECTIONALITY IN SPORT AND RECREATION
The purpose of this project is to offer practical, accessible, context-specific processes that aim to (re)build sport and recreation systems in ways that rigorously counteract decades of exclusion and inequitable access. Working with a curated group of practitioners, policy-makers, and equity-advisors, this three-year project is exploring the following question: "What new recreation policies and practices might emerge if we focused less on including particular 'kinds of people' and more on removing the structural and administrative barriers that currently shape our movement cultures and ambitions?"
