Victoria Reconciliation Dialogues:

#6: Our Shared Future

Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. approx.

(Doors open at 5:30 p.m.)

Location TBA

Guided by: Brianna Dick, Rebeccah Nelems, Associate, Cedar Trees Institute, University of Victoria and Mayor Lisa Helps

The final conversation will be youth-led, asking participants to think about a shared future from the perspective of Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth. The conversation will be forward-looking, identifying community-generated, collaborative Reconciliation activities in which residents and the City of Victoria might engage in the future.

Guided by members of Lekwungen Nations and the City Family, Mayor Lisa Helps, members of City Council and special guests, the conversations will seek to build the community’s knowledge and understanding of Reconciliation – what it is, why it is needed, and why community conversations about Reconciliation are important.

The Dialogues will provide opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to come together to share their ideas and stories, and explore how we as a community can make the culture, history and modern reality of local Indigenous Peoples become present and apparent throughout the city, and understood and valued in people’s everyday lives.

Note: The end time will depend on the length of the conversation.
