  Join True North Aid once again as we celebrate the rich and diverse culture of Indigenous peoples in Canada through various ways including song, story, dance, food and ceremony. This important event shares with many what they may not have learned in school. Speakers include local Elder, Georgina Riel and Paul Carl. This year we are so proud to announce that best-selling Metis-Cree author and award-winning scholar, Jesse Thistle will be a part of this event. His debut memoir, "From the Ashes: My Story of Being Metis, Homeless, and Finding My Way", has garnered critical acclaimed and quickly rose to be an instant best-seller in Canada. This year, Jesse's memoir is nominated for the 2020 CBC Canada Reads short-list. *TICKETS ARE LIMITED* From the Ashes is a remarkable memoir about hope and resilience, and a revelatory look into the life of a Métis-Cree man who refused to give up. During this event, attendees will learn how to make a difference in northern Indigenous communities across Canada.

Event Website/Tickets  

A special workshop in collaboration with Talysha Bujold-Abu, Gallery Manager & Membership Coordinator of the Arts Council, Windsor Region, this ekphrastic (responsive writing) writing workshop is a celebration of contemporary artists of colour. Our two-hour workshop will present an artist’s work without context followed by a written response to the art guided by a writing prompt (any style of writing is welcome in response to the art – poetry, scene, dialogue, free-write, etc.), and then a discussion about the artist, the history of his/her/they work, and sharing of the written work. We will offer information about the artists so writers can further interact and respond to the art beyond the workshop. The intention of this workshop is to engage with visual art through writing and discussion. Bujold-Abu’s expertise with contemporary artists of colour will enable writers to discover new artists, to learn about these artist’s rich creative lives, to write in response to this art, and finally to celebrate the intersection of visual art and writing with contemporary artists of colour. Contemporary Artists of Colour – Responsive Writing Workshop Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020 6:30pm – 8:30pm Teachers: Talysha Bujold-Abu & Vanessa Shields Cost: $30.00 – or if you bring a friend $50.00 per pair. ***Please let us know that you’re coming in a pair via your registration email. Thank you! Register by Friday, June 19th, 2020. For information on how to register, please CLICK HERE.
