Community invited to reconciliation dialogue

How Nanaimo can become a stronger, more diverse and vibrant community is the theme of an interactive evening May 29.

How Nanaimo can become a stronger, more diverse and vibrant community by rising to the challenge of reconciliation is the theme of an interactive evening at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre May 29.

Everyone is welcome to attend the dialogue, co-hosted by Vancouver Island University in partnership with Snuneymuxw First Nation and the City of Nanaimo.

The public forum is the first in a series of dialogue sessions that will address the theme of reconciliation – one of the key outcomes from a community meeting held at VIU last month.

The event begins with brief presentations from members of First Nations communities, followed by an open dialogue so that people can share their ideas on how the community can work together to build a stronger society.

The ideas will be used to plan more activities that will run throughout the year.
