Chris Simba

Chris Simba is the Outreach Lead for The Street Resilience Project. A community-based research initiative that focuses on honouring the stories of young racialized men across the City of Ottawa. During COVID-19, Chris has been strategizing and co-facilitating the engagement sessions through virtual platforms. He has been focusing on bridging the gap through a creative language to unpack and challenge the current narratives about young racialized men. This includes weekly Instagram Live sessions where he engages in dialogue with other young men about a variety of issues that impact them.

Some of the topics were:
Men Cry Too,
Gun Violence
Toxic Masculinity.

The hashtag is central to the project vision in humanizing the most misunderstood, underserved and silenced populations within our communities. The project recently collaborated with a Toronto-based initiative ”Humanize The Hood” to film a short documentary about the experiences of young racialized men in Ottawa. In addition to his role, he is the founder and creative director of Kulture management, a talent agency focused on amplifying Black voices through creative content
