Many Windows, One Light 2019: Towards a Caring and Welcoming Community

February 9, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Join in an inspired afternoon of participatory community dialogue and connection that will share deep stories of the best local, proactive responses to hate, and then discover synergies and next steps among activists, community leaders and groups doing existing work on these issues.

This event (at The Mount Community Centre) is created by a community coalition of faith and non-faith groups, and sponsored by partners including the Community Race Relations Committee, the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough, the Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough and the Beth Israel Congregation.

Our time together will include:

  • A context-setting “provocateur” presentation by our guest speaker, Bernie Farber. Bernie is one of Canada’s leading experts on human rights and race relations, and chair of the Canadian Anti-Hate Network. (Includes Q&A.)

And then:

  • Artfully hosted participatory dialogue to discover possibilities, partnerships and next steps. Our lead host is Ben Wolfe, a local community-builder and national Art of Hosting practitioner, with supporting volunteers.

The Creating Space art hive will be there with artmaking supplies. We’ll finish with a potluck dinner with all participants.

There is no cost to attend — but come prepared to participate deeply. Space is limited, register now at EventBrite.
