Words to Give Back: Words that have Lifted us Up

February 14 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


This event is part of the Honouring Indigenous Writers series, which seeks to increase awareness of Indigenous authors. Learn more: https://hiw.open.ubc.ca/

In this workshop participants are asked to honour an Indigenous writer by giving back a sentence, a lyric, a passage, a word. We invite you to bring these word gifts that nurtured you on March 14th. We will begin in the CEDaR Lab where we will create signs displaying the words that upheld us. Afterward, we will walk them across UBC, with a megaphone, offering these words to the sky, the land, and to places on campus that might need healing. Please join us in this collective work of care and acknowledgment.

Location: CEDaR Lab (104A Buchanan Tower 1 873 East Mall)
