We invite you to join us on 1 June 2019 from 10:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.
For a full day pre-conference workshop on:
RECONCILIATION & ADULT LEARNING THROUGH NARRATIVE MÉTISSAGE
• Connect through storytelling
• Spark your creativity
• Learn a new method for learning, teaching, research, and community engagement
How do we begin to tell the story of Canada’s legacy of colonization in a way that opens dialogue and inspires action? Métissage offers one possibility.
Métissage is a creative method that interweaves personal stories, poetry, gestures, and images. It values both the individual and the collective and supports the complex and often messy unfolding of our shared human tapestry.
In this full-day workshop, participants will explore what reconciliation means in adult education contexts through the process of narrative métissage. We will describe the method, lead participants through a range of creative prompts and practices, create the space for sharing and hearing stories, engage in meaningful dialogue, and provide a list of take-home resources.
