Envisioning Beautiful Futures
This workshop, presented by Trent University, involves exploring our deep connection to a place to inspire a beautiful vision for the future. The workshop will allow for reflection on what is most meaningful to each participant about the lands that they live on and the lands that they come from. Participants will be encouraged to bring pictures or other items that express this connection to share with each other virtually. The workshop will include interactive dialogue on how we can take these personal connections into our daily lives, our work, our communities all the way up to how we envision relationships with lands and peoples in this country into the future. The workshop will then engage in creating a vision for the future by bringing reflections together through group discussions as well as individual creative expressions such as writing, poems, drawing, songs or any other form that participants feel comfortable with. We’ll end the workshop by exploring small and practical ways in which we can bring our visions for a beautiful future into being to carry with us when we go.
