This Multicultural learning event and dinner is part of a larger Racism Awareness project funded by the Province of British Columbia and hosted by the Nechako Creative Communities Collective (NC3) and the Good Neighbours Committee. The larger project included presentations of excerpts of ‘Mirrors” – a play about how the settler community unconsciously perpetuates hurt against Indigenous peoples in our region.
Each performance was followed by a facilitated dialogue so that the audience could process the scenes they saw and we could all share together how to be better neighbours to each other, which is what we ALL want, regardless of background.
The Dinner is the culmination of 5 cooking/learning workshops where participants got to learn about each other’s cultures/ethnic origins, through the medium of food (something else we ALL want!).
Mutual understanding, curiosity and learning created an atmosphere of generosity and belonging for everyone. Come to the dinner and share in the process!
