How do we talk about building a city? Through story? Food? Art? What about music or film? On Saturday, November 7 the Indigenous City Gathering brings together these elements for an unforgettable night of conversation, connection and community at SFU Woodward’s.
Join SFU Public Square , Rain City Chronicles and grunt gallery for a stirring evening featuring extraordinary Indigenous leaders, artists and community members. From storytelling to live painting, traditional foods and memorable performances, the first Indigenous City Gathering will spark conversation and connection around the theme of city building. This is the closing event of the SFU Public Square 2015 Community Summit: We The City .
Hosted by Renae Morrisseau, the evening will include:
- Presentation and performances by Gabriel George, Cecilia Point, Ginger Gosnell-Myers, Karen Joseph, Senaqwila Wyss and more.
