Event description

Description

Intercultural Reflections on Fasting: Iftar Edition is an event that has been organized by Righting Relations: Adult Education for Social Change and N2N Hamilton Community Food Centre.



This event brings together storytellers from Anishnaabek and Muslim backgrounds to share reflections on fasting - what it means to our people, why we do it and the intercultural bridges that can be built. We have three great storytellers who are joining us to share their insights and reflections. There will be time for question and answer, as well.

One of our speakers is Isaac Murdoch who is an Anishnaabek storyteller from Serpent River First Nation. We will also be joined by two speakers from the Muslim Association of Hamilton, as well as having time for question and answer.

As we learn more about the cultural significance of fasting, we will also join together to feast. We will celebrate Iftar together with some light refreshments, as well as other delicious foods and drinks.

The event is free and open to everyone.
