Join this participatory community event for an honest dialogue about trust. How does trust facilitate a world of welcome?

About this event

Whether you are a person with refugee displacement experience or a Canadian welcoming people seeking refuge, trust is critical and requires patience. This event explores the value of trust–its importance, the barriers and possible trust-building strategies–through storytelling and expert input. In the midst of a world troubled by isolation, division, and displacement, sustaining trust is even more urgent to weave a healthy social fabric.

The goal of this two-hour event is that participants leave with a deepened awareness of the value of trust, and with inspiration for new ways to trust in the dynamic space where displacement and welcome meet.

The conversation will be facilitated by Erin Goheen and Wilfred Thariki.

Everyone is welcome to join.
