The Neighbourhood Speaker Series explores a range of topics shared by Indigenous speakers and knowledge keepers. Community members are invited to bring and ask questions of the speakers during these interactive online sessions.

If we have not changed the way we introduce ourselves to each other and this land then what are we reconciling? If resource exploitation, racism and colonization continue today, how can we change? Join Brandon Gabriel, mixed-media artist and activist, as he looks back at some highlights of his 27 year artistic journey and shares what you can do to tackle reconciliation in your own life.
