The Aboriginal Rights Coalition-Atlantic, with whom Breaking the Silence
has had a long relationship (especially in relation to the human rights
observer program in Esgenoopetitj/Burnt Church), invites you to a day on
cross-cultural learnings at Tatamagouche Centre.
ARC-A Cross-Cultural Learnings Day
May 5, 2007; Saturday 10am to 4pm
Do you, or are you interested in, working with Aboriginal/non-Aboriginal
projects here in the Maritimes? Do you have an interest in the
cross-cultural gifts and challenges in our work with ARSN and Breaking the
Silence partner organizations? Do you want to share what the best practices
are for this work? Do you want to get more involved?
This is an opportunity for Atlantic Canadians to gather and reflect on what
we are learning, so far, about working cross-culturally in the world. We
will hear from both sides, from people who are working in other countries,
as well as people who are working here at home, building respectful
relationships across cultures. We will discover common themes, interesting
challenges and important differences in cross-cultural work, as we bring
together those who are involved in each of these areas.
Come for a great discussion. Come to find out how to get involved. Come to
share your perspectives, to learn and to get connected with some very
interesting people and organizations!
