In celebration of her time as Vancouver Public Library's 2016 Aboriginal Storyteller in Residence, Renae Morriseau brings together a group of writers and artists to consider what reconciliation means to artists.
Artists on a whole are the backbone of philosophical discussions within societies. Often challenging communities to think forward backward and in the present. When the Truth and Reconciliation commission put forward the 94 recommendations to the federal government and to Canadians. Artists were left to wonder how that affects them within their communities. Join us for an evening with the Aboriginal Writers Collective and special guests to discover "The Art of Reconciliation" and unleash what reconciliation means to an artist living on unceded territory of the Salish people.
This is a free event.
The Facebook event page includes descriptions of the 17 artists.
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
