  • THREADS – Cultural Conversations Virtual Event – Saskatoon Open Door Society (SODS) – January 20th and 21st, 20201
    • Threads grew out of this mission to increase awareness. It is intended as a series of stories and presentations by individuals who know or have lived through life-changing incidents related to belonging, overcoming social and cultural barriers, inter-cultural exchange, and more.
    • The objective is to generate knowledge and discussion that can lead to development on both personal and professional levels, not only for our clients and us but also for all our online participants, as these shared experiences help us rethink community and race relations and eliminate stereotypes.
    • Over 30 speakers and performers from all walks of life and backgrounds, local and national, will share their stories in online talks and solo and group presentations accompanied by performances, readings and displays of music, art, philosophy, needlework and more including:
      • Andrea Menard - Metis singer, songwriter and actor
      • Former Governor General, broadcaster, journalist the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson in conversation with CBC journalist Omayra Issa
