The Tunnel is an INTERACTIVE EVENT that highlights and introduces participants to contemporary issues of OPPRESSION, POWER, and PRIVILEGE.

Bullying Room

During The Tunnel, participants are guided through a series of scenes that aim to educate and challenge them to think more deeply about issues of oppression.

Topics that are addressed include racism, religious oppression, classism, rape culture, relationship violence, bullying, etc.

At the end of the tour, participants are provided with the opportunity to discuss their experiences with each other. Facilitators help participants reflect on their experiences and put their newfound knowledge to use in their everyday lives. Before leaving, participants will learn of opportunities for involvement in addressing some of the issues presented during The Tunnel.

  1. Explore social justice, diversity and inclusiveness issues.
