ROUND TABLE GATHERINGS

In 2020-21, 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:

  • Ottawa
  • Temagami
  • Manitoulin Island
  • Sudbury
  • Nipissing Region
  • Six Nations
  • Thunder Bay
  • Peterborough
  • Toronto
  • Kingston

Dates, times and locations will be determined later in 2020 – 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.
