Free Reconciliation Lunch & Learn with Lillian Howard on September 19
In the weeks leading up to the September 24 Walk for Reconciliation, the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture would like to serve you lunch and to give you an opportunity to hear firsthand the stories of people affected by the residential school system. We’ll nourish you and provide an environment of openness and honesty. We just ask you to bring an open heart and a willingness to better understand the need for reconciliation. On September 19, we’ll be hearing from Lillian Howard.
Lillian Howard is Mowachaht and is of Nuu-chah-nulth, Kwakwaka’wakw and Tlingit ancestry. She is an active Indigenous, social and environmental advocate. Among her many roles, Lillian is co-chair of the Vancouver Urban Aboriginal Peoples Advisory Committee and a member of the Butterflies in Spirit dance group, which raises awareness about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women/Girls and Men/Boys. Lillian is deeply involved in the reconciliation process.
In addition, there are still spaces open for our September 12 lunch and learn with Norm Leech and Donna Dickison. In order to finalize numbers for the free lunches, we ask that anyone interested in the Sept. 12 session please register by this Friday, September 8.
To register for the lunch and learns, and to join us on September 24 to Walk for Reconciliation, please visit the Walk for Reconciliation page at the BC Alliance website.
