Why is this event called Threads? It started with a story.
You can read it here.
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 20th and 21st. Each of the four sessions offers a diversity of speakers, creating the following four session titles: Inviting You In, Beginnings and Endings, Expanding Our Perspectives, and Growing Our Roots. Join us for one, two, three, or all four sessions, from the comfort of your home or office, at no cost.
Registering for Threads is free and easy. With a donation of $50 or more, you will also receive access to our database of resources for a full year.
Threads hosts over 30 speakers and performers from across Canada, featuring keynote speaker Andrea Menard and special guests Kamal Al-Solaylee, Omayra Issa and the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson. Our diverse speakers from all walks of life share stories, giving you another perspective that you perhaps haven’t thought of before. There’s more than one truth. Same story, diverse understandings, joined by a single thread.
