The Stories from a Distance Team has had a wonderful time hosting weekly live sessions for you all! We started this project as a way to create an online community to combat isolation and loneliness in the midst of the pandemic. We’ve gotten to know so many of you and we hope that these sessions have been supportive in these times.

We wanted to update our community that this week is going to be our final week of live sessions by the Stories from a Distance team. While we will miss connecting with all of our, we’ll be sure to post some fantastic online resources & digital communities to support individuals in finding connection online at UofT. This week, our final two sessions will be our community favourites: mindful doodling and a community games night! So join us one last time to unwind and game with us!

Here’s what this coming week will look like:

Fireside Chats: Mindful Doodling

Wednesday, December 2 at 6:00 – 7:00 PM, Hosted by Sanskriti

Calling all doodlers, scribblers and scrabblers! Take a break with the Stories from a Distance community as we come together to make art and decompress. During this 1-hour Zoom call, we will be drawing as a way to breathe, ground ourselves and take a mindfulness moment. We hope this session not only gives you a much-needed break from online classes and scrolling through social media, but also leads to some art you would be proud to hang on your fridge. No doodling experience needed!

Friday, December 4 at 6:00 – 7:00 PM, Hosted by Mona

Calling all board game enthusiasts! Join us one last time this Friday, as the Stories from a Distance team gets competitive with some virtual board games. Join us to play classic games like Skribblio, Codenames, and of course we are open to any suggestions during the session. In all of our sessions, participation is encouraged but never required! This student-led session held over Zoom is the perfect opportunity to have fun and take a break from school or work with other U of T community members.
