What is Dis-Orientation?

Dis-Orientation Week (Dis-O Week) is a week of workshops, discussions, tours and events that engage new and returning students, as well as the Trent community, in positioning themselves as anti-oppressive and environmentally-sustainable members of the Trent and Peterborough community. It is also meant to re-centre the narratives on fringe voices and empower marginalized communities. The events and workshops vary from local context to international issues.
