Transforming perspectives: a student focus.
One more day until the Mini-Conference! Please remember to bring a can for the CANSTRUCTION, and your reusable mug or water bottle, and we’ll see you on transit!
Day 1: Keynote speaker Lawrence Hill
Lawrence Hill will describe his journey into the writing life and his development as a writer. He will discuss his most recent novels (The Illegal and The Book of Negroes), situate them in the context of Black history and social upheaval in Canada, and meditate on migration, dislocation, belonging, and the search for identity and home.
Can’t come to other sessions? You can still come to see Lawrence Hill – register now while there’s still time. Pick up your copy of Lawrence Hill’s The Book of Negroes at Langara’s bookstore now.
Day 2: Keynote Event – Theatre for Living
Through simple theatre activities, conference participants will voluntarily explore the interface between employees and students and create ‘Images’. Collectively, participants engage with the issues in a creative, embodied discussion of empathy and sense of belonging between employees and students. Participants will take away insights at individual and group levels.
