Join us for the Living Heritage Symposium!

Expanding on last year’s theme of “Sharing the Land,” presentations will focus on how we relate to the land in a changing world. By the age of seven each one of us has been immersed in a cultural milieu we inherit from previous generations. As we grow, our cultural perspective & worldview are adapted to meet changing needs and circumstances. Through interactive exercises, conversation and performance we will explore different cultural perspectives and contemporary values related to our understanding of place, our relationship with the land and how we care for the land that sustains us all. Creating a shared
future depends on it.

Sessions include:
• Conversation with Trevor Herriot, Saskatchewan based writer – naturalist – activist
• Discussion on Faith Perspectives on the Land
• Discussion on Values, Policy and the Land
• Performance by “Songwriting for Nature” artists
The cost to attend is $10.00 + GST. If you would like to attend but the registration fee is a barrier, please contact organizers for registration options.

Throughout Saskatchewan, during the month of February, individuals, families and communities will come together to celebrate African-Canadian Black History Month. Every year, Canadians are invited to participate in African-Canadian Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of African-Canadians, past and present. Canadians take this time to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Canadians with African heritage who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation we know today. It is also an opportunity for all of us to learn about the wide range of African-Canadian experiences, including dealing with racism, and the vital role this community has played
