I recently had the great fortune to return to an incredible school in Toronto, where I taught visual art seven years ago, this time as a researcher for Decode Global! I spent three weeks at The Linden School, a small, all girls school, spanning grades one through twelve, with a feminist mandate.

Manifestations of this culture or attitude are often referred to as being “so Linden” or as “the Linden way”.
