Truth & Reconciliation Commission Report Reading Group – Session #1

Wednesday, November 22, 2017, 6:30-8 pm

This group will gather for 8 monthly sessions to collectively read and discuss Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. The Commission was established in 2008 with the dual mandate of gathering the testimony of survivors of the residential school system and providing a path forward to healing and reconciliation. This reading group will pay particular attention to questions of how cultural producers and art institutions can acknowledge our roles in a colonial past and present, how we can develop practices that work toward reconciliation, and how to understand the calls to action in an artistic context.

In this first session we will lay the groundwork for the following sessions, establishing a framework to guide our reading of the subsequent sections of the report. Participants should read the Preface, Introduction, and Commission Activities sections of the report, pages 1-36, in advance of the gathering.

The report can be downloaded for free from the TRC website at the following link: http://www.trc.ca/websites/trcinstitution/File/2015/Honouring_the_Truth…
