Join CSL 300 students and instructor Dr. Zane Hamm to learn more about the power of story telling for connection, community and social change.
There will be a team of educators and Indigenous story tellers present:
Karen Matthews, Weasel Tale Digital Storytelling
This is an opportunity to be part of a learning circle - learning about lived experiences through digital stories and conversation with the guidance of Indigenous story tellers. Learn about residential schools and history and understand more about the 'truth' and commitments to the Truth and Reconcilitation Commission (TRC) that many of us were not taught in school.
Digital stories are a medium that we can connect to - for reflection and to ask questions we were afraid to ask. How can we learn more about the calls to action in the TRC and what that means on campus and with/in community? We will hear from experienced digital storytellers and a digital story facilitator about the deep commitment to hold a space for this process of story telling and story listening to unfold.
