BCMA Book Club | Truth and Reconciliation

Join the BCMA for a read-along of The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC)’s Summary of the Final Report

Over eight sessions, participants will read through Honouring the Truth and Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the TRC alongside BCMA team members, Lorenda and Leia. The purpose of this series of online discussions is to be part of cultural heritage professionals’ efforts toward creating a foundation of truth to build from and to utilize existing resources. Education on topics and histories resulting from colonialism is critical if the sector is to move forward in reconciliation.

Those joining will be prompted to read sections of the Report ahead of the bi-weekly sessions so they can participate in a peer-to-peer discussion. The BCMA Book Club will culminate in a discussion on how we can implement and take action based on the findings from the Summary of the Final Report.

A note on safety, self-care, and self-regulation. The content covered in the TRC can be emotionally triggering and exhausting. As we move through the readings try to pay attention to your body cues that you might need a break. Registration is not required and we encourage you to take breaks or time away as needed. Your well-being is important.
