REVOLUTION: Engaging Human Creativity
Over the weeks leading up to the Alliance's 2017 annual conference, REVOLUTION: Engaging Human Creativity, we'll be sharing some of the exciting programming and engaging speakers conference attendees have to look forward to at Orpheum Annex and VSO School of Music's Pyatt Hall in Vancouver on Thursday, June 8.
Today, we spotlight Teara Fraser of The Raven Institute, who will deliver a workshop entitled "Exploring Reconciliation through Arts and Culture." See below for more information on the workshop and Teara below, and stay tuned for more information on REVOLUTION, including registration information!
Exploring Reconciliation through Arts and Culture
Our time together will begin with an acknowledgment of the traditional territory, learning what it is and why it is important. We will journey together through a brief overview of our shared history and explore how this continues to influence the wellness of our families and communities.
With the energy and wisdom in the room, we’ll co-create a safe space to have meaningful conversations on the relationship between arts and culture and reconciliation. This engaging workshop is rooted in Indigenous ways of knowing and being – leaving you with teachings, reflections, inspiration to know more and do more, and the opportunity to contribute to a leading edge conversation in the spirit of reconciliation.
