What is Threads?
Threads: Cultural Conversations explores the issues, challenges and desires for Newcomers, Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures to live in harmony, to settle and belong anew, in a time of unprecedented migration around the globe. Participatory sessions weave together knowledge, art, film, storytelling, philosophy, dance, music, poetry, games and more, to discuss and explore issues around what it means to flourish and belong as diverse peoples.

How can people from different cultures, geographies, and religions learn to live with each other so that all can flourish? Let’s begin by asking questions and listening with a desire to learn. Hear the responses and experiences of over 30 exciting speakers at our two-day, free, online conference. Let’s create shared experiences that open the door to seeing, knowing and being an empathetic global community!
There are morning and afternoon sessions available on both January 19 and 20. Each of our sessions offers a diversity of speakers. Join us for one, two, three, or all four sessions for FREE from the comfort of your home or office!
