Open to the Public!
Our 10th anniversary series opens with Heartwork in W2B: A Conversation with Elders on Incarceration and Education. Indigenous Knowledge Keepers (Bonny Spencer & Florence Blois) and W2B instructors (Sara Howdle, Dr. Tracy Bear & Lisa Prins) will discuss the cultural and ceremonial knowledge that Elders bring to education at Edmonton Institution for Women.
Our keynote speech, Reading and Writing to Free the Mind, will be given by author and W2B Instructor Lawrence Hill (The Book of Negroes, The Illegal). He will speak about the use of memoir-writing in W2B classes to process, make sense of, and give literary form to key events in one’s own life and learn from the stories of others.
*ASL and closed captioning will be available for this event. We will do our best to provide additional accommodation requests for accessibility purposes. Should you have an accessibility need, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 28th.
