Over the next year, we will offer four events. One each in September, November, January and March.

It may be a speaker, a panel or a short film. We want to inform, challenge or prompt our thinking on the topic of the event. Then we will collect a lunch snack and join a small group of seniors and students for a facilitated discussion. The aim of this is to enrich our understanding of the topic by considering the views and opinions of each generation. What can we learn from each other? How can we set aside possible stereotypes to appreciate our similarities and respect our differences?

Reconciliation: What does it mean to you?

The focus of the event is to celebrate Treaty 7 territory (Calgary and surrounding areas), raise awareness on colonization, increase efforts for decolonization, facilitate learning, and honour the Indigenous peoples of Canada through active reconciliation. We hope to create a space that allows participants to connect and collaborate to build community and discuss individual actions that one can take to participate in reconciliation.
