Dialogue Day on Weaving Relations – Tightening the Weave: Strengthening our Learning
Hosted by the Faculties of Applied Science and Land and Food Systems
The Dialogue Day for Weaving Relations: Tightening the Weave is a chance to engage with a deeper exploration of Indigenous history, world views and defining reconciliation. The focus of the Dialogue Day will be to engage in listening and learning, and a community lunch will be provided.
In this workshop, we will be touching on reframing our assumptions and expanding our worldviews, developing tools for engagement and sharing with challenges us in incorporating this work into university spaces as well as what motivates us to continue.
Throughout the Dialogue Day, we hope participants will:
- Identify colonial systems and work towards creating more decolonial spaces at UBC.
- Be inspired to take on practical steps and strategies for implementing reconciliation within and across their departments and/or units.
- Build community and networks of care to empower and support one another in this work.
This workshop draws on material from the canvas course Weaving Relations. Participants are encouraged to enroll in Weaving Relations and continue in their learning journey. Course registration can be accessed here.
“Weaving Relations explores Indigenous histories, peoples, and contexts, as well as settler colonialism in Canada, through the lens of Indigenous-Canadian relationships. The course considers how we got to where we are now, and how we can build a better future together.”
