Are our cities on the brink of becoming two-tier zones—inner cores for the super-rich and the margins for everyone else? Join AZURE on Wednesday, October 24 at OCAD University in Toronto for The Inclusive City, a discussion on how to create and maintain inclusive urban environments featuring architects Gregory Henriquez and Meg Graham, urban designer Ken Greenberg and architect and urbanist Antonio Gomez-Palacio.
This lecture qualifies for one ConEd structured learning hour (a certificate will be provided upon request, post-event, by email).
Reporting in Indigenous communities can be tough. It’s not just navigating sensitive issues like those surrounding stories about missing and murdered Indigenous women, but covering complex terrain in stories that include the Indian Act, treaties, and land claims, to name a few. Many writers grapple with how to tell a sensitive story, and Canadian Indigenous stories are frequently left out or negatively slanted in media. Join award-winning Gitxsan journalist Angela Sterritt, who has worked with Journalists for Human Rights to facilitate the course called Reporting in Indigenous Communities, as she shares tactics and tips about how to get it right. You will learn how to get the facts right while being mindful of historical concerns such as stereotyping and under-reporting, and subsequent mistrust. You will also learn how to get the story right while being respectful to Indigenous people, communities and cultures.
