What Can I Do? A Workshop on “Doing Reconciliation”

Friday, January 20, 2017; 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Workshop led by Chris Creighton-Kelly & Diane Roberts. Limited to 20 participants.

This workshop was designed primarily for non-Indigenous Canadians who want to contribute towards “reconciliation” with Indigenous peoples. Using deep listening and innovative, participatory techniques borrowed from theatre — such as embodied creative expression — participants discovered fresh ways of both locating themselves in this conversation and of imagining actions that they can create moving forward. Encouraged by the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, this workshop assisted participants in understanding a “new creation story for Canada,” as they answer the question, “What can I do?”
