The Indigenous City Gathering is produced in partnership with the Grunt Gallery and Rain City Chronicles.
This event is part of the SFU Public Square 2015 Community Summit: We The City. From October 30th to November 7th, SFU Public Square will host a series of imaginative and interactive events. We will reflect on the important role of creativity, arts and culture in building and sustaining our cities and our neighbourhoods.
By profiling the increasing pressure facing municipalities by surging urbanization and considering what attracts and holds people to our urban centres, we will remind residents of the power they hold to shape their city.
Together, we will deliberate on possible futures where everyone can not only survive, but also thrive. We will invigorate the public conversation on how people can connect with their cities, find their voice, and enjoy increased participation in civic life. Check out the full line up of events and activities!
