Public invited to university session

The AlterKnowledge Discussion forum looks at colonization and how it continues to shape our relationships

Members of the public, along with University of B.C. students and faculty, are invited to the next AlterKnowledge Discussion forum on colonization and how it continues to shape our relationships to place, and to each other.

“Arguably, all Canadian citizens have a responsibility to understand the colonial histories of their home community,” said co-organizer Allison Hargreaves.

But, she suggests, “people often wonder what this might look like in practice, and how we can represent colonial histories responsibly. This AlterKnowledge discussion is a chance to explore these kinds of questions.”

Join UBC visual arts lecturer Tannis Nielsen and fine arts graduate student Amberley John for a discussion about the possibilities of reckoning, in art and in activism, with colonial histories in today’s world.

The event takes place Friday at 7 p.m. at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, in the Rotary Centre for the Arts, in Kelowna.

It is a free event, and the public is welcome to attend.
