Using the Witness Blanket as a point of entry, we will examine the relationship between truth, art, commemoration, reconciliation and healing. I will share personal insights I have learned along my journey as its creator, not only about what meaningful reconciliation truly means, but how we are often lured away from the larger picture by the feel good promise of short term solutions. We will also address the important role of education and how to navigate the challenges that educators face around implementing the TRC calls to action.
*Carey will be facilitating two workshops at the conference.
