Committing to Reconciliation In Toronto and Sudbury
November 9, 2017 Indigenous Issues
Across the country many groups and individuals are organizing activities and events that commit to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. For example, later this month:
**Truth & Reconciliation Commission Report Reading Group
Session One of this of 8 monthly sessions convenes this month at the Art Gallery of Ontario . The group will collectively read and discuss Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. This reading group will pay particular attention to questions of how cultural producers and art institutions can acknowledge our roles in a colonial past and present, how we can develop practices that work toward reconciliation, and how to understand the calls to action in an artistic context. The sessions are free.
