Land Talks: Voices of Original Peoples and Diasporic Communities

Calling all storyholders and storytellers! Land Talks is a full day, interactive workshop centering the art of storytelling and witnessing diasporic peoples’ experiences of migration, place-making and community building. The word diaspora describes the movement or settlement of peoples away from their ancestral homelands.

We believe that youth from diasporic communities, who are now settlers in Mi’kma’ki, can use their embodied knowledge of colonization to be effective allies in supporting Indigenous sovereignty. We invite all newcomer, immigrant, and BIPOC youth aged 16-29 to fill out the registration form here: https://linktr.ee/youthproject ! Spaces are limited in this FREE event! Any questions can be directed to our BIPOC Community Engagement Coordinator, Rae at [email protected]

Accessibility: This event is free and hosted at Pier 21 Museum, a wheelchair accessible facility. Gender neutral washrooms are on site. ASL interpretation available by request. A long form, plain text access guide is available in our linktree.
