Making Friends with Places: A Passage de Toronto Workshop
Part 1: Tuesday, October 9th, 6:00 – 9:00 PM
Part 2: Thursday, October 11th, 6:00 – 9:00 PM
This two-part workshop will offer participants an introduction to learning about their individual, familial, cultural, nation, and professional position from the lands, waters, and climate they live and work within. The two 3-hour workshop sessions will be grounded in the ancestral land relations of High Park and Humber River (Passage de Taron:to), and will begin with situating ourselves in the living relations of this place. We will engage some stories from the three Indigenous nations of Taron:to (Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Wendat) and wampum treaties like the Two Row. There is an emphasis on participatory activities that asks participants to draw insights from the land/water/climate-based teachings, and to begin thinking about their ancestral origins, stories and practices in relation to what these places teach. These sessions are centred on different ways of relating with the land/water we live within.
