Curious Minds Weekend: Remarkable speakers and engaging ideas, live on stage from March 3–5.
How do we celebrate the great achievements in Canadian history while acknowledging—and learning from—the sins of our past? How can we ensure that our national imagination is inclusive to all experiences? Few Canadians have tackled these questions with more creativity than the writers Cecil Foster (Independence), Charlotte Gray (The Promise of Canada), Joseph Boyden (The Orenda) and Lee Maracle (Celia’s Song). As Canada enters its sesquicentennial year, join these four extraordinary storytellers for a thought-provoking conversation on the country’s evolving historical narrative, and their passion for bringing the past to life.
