In 2021-22, round table gatherings will take place across the province with Indigenous artists, organizations, groups and communities to discuss and celebrate Indigenous creative/cultural spaces. Notes from each gathering as well as a document summarizing the gatherings will be posted publicly. Gathering discussions will consider questions such as:
- What is working/not working?
- What is needed?
- Where should spaces be located?
- Who should lead them?
- How can we extend partnership networks?
- How can we learn from each other?
Gatherings will be hosted by an Indigenous Advisory Circle member in 10 communities across Ontario. The communities include:
- Manitoulin Island
- Nipissing Region
- Six Nations
- Thunder Bay
Dates, times and locations will be determined later in 2021 – due to COVID-19, round table gatherings have been deferred until the health and wellbeing of all communities is ensured.
Summaries from gatherings will be posted on this webpage following each meeting.
