Students at the school will engage in a variety of collaborative art projects featuring the Raven. From an origami mobile to traditional beadwork, to designs that support participation in artwork for all ages and abilities, students will work toward a collective understanding of Reconciliation, the importance of the educational Calls to Action, and a commitment as a school community to furthering our Reconciliation efforts. We welcome the community to smudge at the beginning of the event. Soup and buns will be provided for attendees and their families.

What is an Annual Public Meeting and why hold one?

As a Crown corporation, the Canada Council for the Arts is legally required to hold an Annual Public Meeting. More than that, it is a great opportunity to share annual updates with the arts community and the wider public in Canada.

Threads showcases the experiences of speakers and performers from across Canada. They come together and explore the question “How can people from different cultures, geographies, and religions learn to live with each other so that all can flourish?”
