Courtenay McKay created a series of posters for the Gender Based Violence Prevention Project (GBVPP) at the University of Alberta to spread awareness about rape culture.

The Gender Based Violence Prevention Project is a new project of the Students’ Union that promotes a campus free of gender based violence. Gender Based Violence exists in both visible and invisible ways on our campus and affects the lives of many University students, staff, faculty, and community members. Through education, awareness, and institutional change, we are striving to create a campus free of gender based violence where everyone can feel safe and supported.”

You can’t control everything. Turmoil, conflict, chaos, this is part of life. Look at any playground. The screaming, the laughter, the tears, out of the mayhem comes out relationship and love and the simple joy of being surprised by life.

-Joan of Arcadia

I’m learning more and more how little control I have over life. Every time I step into a classroom it reminds me about the simple joys and how to appreciate them.
