Becoming Neighbours – Welcome


What creates the warmest welcome with and for people experiencing forced displacement?

Explore practices and postures of welcome in dialogue with people who have lived the refugee experience and those who haven’t.

At this free, interactive Welcome workshop, you will

  • hear from panels with refugee and Indigenous perspective
  • participate in roundtable conversations
  • get a sneak preview of Worn Word’s new film Welcomestory.

Workshop goal: foster and increase practices and postures that lead to a transformative welcome

When: 25 Mar 2023 – Saturday – 0900-1200 Pacific Time (attend in-person (downtown Vancouver) or virtually (zoom))
