MOVING FORWARD: A COURAGEOUS CONVERSATION ABOUT RECONCILIATION

The final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, says that reconciliation “is about establishing and maintaining a mutually respectful relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples.” Building this relationship requires the participation of our entire society – every person, family, group, organization, and level of government. It also requires open and honest discussion. On February 4, join us and be a part of that discussion when the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission hosts Moving Forward: A Courageous Conversation About Reconciliation.

Panelists: CeCe Baptiste, Eleanore Sunchild, Q.C., David Fisher, and Chief Troy Cooper

FROM MANY PEOPLES STRENGTH: A COURAGEOUS CONVERSATION ABOUT RACISM IN SASKATCHEWAN

We live in a diverse society. Our provincial motto, Multis e gentibus virus¸ teaches us to embrace that diversity as one of our greatest strengths. Yet, racism and discrimination remain a very real, underlying, and unfortunate reality in our province. People with identities marginalized and oppressed by racism face ongoing challenges on both personal and systemic levels. As much as talking about these issues surrounding race can be difficult and uncomfortable, it is necessary. Join us on February 11, as the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission hosts From Many Peoples Strength: A Courageous Conversation About Racism in Saskatchewan, and help us live up to our provincial motto.

Panelists: Ali Abukar, Fatima Coovadia, Joel Bernbaum, Nicola Bishop-Yong

COURAGEOUS CONVERSATIONS will be presented at Persephone Theatre on February 4 & 11 prior to the 8:00 pm performances of REASONABLE DOUBT, a documentary play with live music created by Joel Bernbaum, Lancelot Knight and Yvette Nolan.

Shows: Tuesday to Sunday at Persephone Theatre from January 29 to February 12, 2020.
