BCMA Regional Workshop: Candid Actionable Reconciliation Education (CARE)

BCMA Regional Workshop: Candid Actionable Reconciliation Education (CARE) June 24, 2024 10:00 am - 3:00 pm Terrace Art Gallery Well-intentioned actions can cause harm, and museums’ attempts to act in supporting truth and reconciliation are overwhelming many Indigenous communities. Settlers and non-Indigenous organizations must take steps to redress centuries of injustice without relying on Indigenous communities and knowledge holders to be the sole drivers of change. The BCMA has provided CARE Resources online, including a Relationship Building Workbook. While organizations may be rushing to create relationships that will help move reconciliation work forward, they must take the time to learn, question, and reflect on their own practices and histories, instead of expecting Indigenous communities to reflect for them. The goal of the workbook and associated resources is to avoid the inequality in labor, both physical and emotional that stems from these interactions. Join Leia and Lorenda for this regional workshop to unpack the Relationship Building Workbook, self-reflect, and lay a foundation for better relationships with Indigenous communities and partners. Registration fee: $50.00 Notes: Please bring your own lunch. To maximize the amount of time we have together, our lunch break will be short. Coffee, tea, and light snacks will be available in the morning. Registrants will be provided with a printed copy of the workbook.
