Notions and Bundles

Co-facilitators Sarah de Leeuw (HARC Research Director) and Margo Greenwood (Scientific Director, National Collaborating Centre for Aborignal Health)  are offering 12 engaging cultural awareness and respect workshops throughout British Columbia this winter and spring to Early Years Service Providers within the Ministry of Child and Family Development (MCFD). The 3-hour workshops encourage participants to use arts-based reflection to actively explore their assumptions, biases and knowledges about Indigenous peoples and families. Attendees create and leave with a bundled token of what they have reflected upon and learned, which can be worn as a pin to represent and remind them of what they have learned, as well as initiate important conversations with others.

Look for more on this ongoing initiative in the months ahead!
