From Denial to Acceptance- Decolonizing 101

Introducing our first Grace Lab of 2020!

Grace Labs are similar to Grace Club speaker series in their vision and intention, but are a deeper dive into a specific educational opportunity.

Grace Lab x Decolonizing Practices

What is Decolonizing? And why does it matter? This is your invitation to come explore this question.

This will be an unforgettable workshop guided by Michelle Nahanee, Squamish of Decolonizing Practices (@chenchenstway) and Jacqueline Jennings, Mixed Heritage, Cree, Anishinaabe, Métis and settler descent.

Think of it as a Decolonizing 101 Learning Lab.

“Decolonizing Practices are actions we can take, words we can say & ideas we can unlearn/learn to address the challenge of where to start within the enormity of Reconciliation.” - Michelle Nahanee

Can you see your roles within this work? Decolonization is for everybody, supporting us all to move beyond neocolonial denial and be better ancestors. This Grace Lab will help you build the resilience you need to stay in the dialogue of decolonization and generate commitments you can grow with.

Meeting everyone where they are at, we will be exploring our complicity within colonialism, guided by decolonial love and matriarchal care.

Grace Club meets on the unceded and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Watuth) nations of the Coast Salish people.
