Truth, Art and Reconciliation
Friday, October 21, 7:30 PM
Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites
360 Great Northern Rd.
Albert Schultz, Artistic Director of Toronto’s celebrated Soulpepper Theatre Company, visited the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre at Algoma University to meet one of its founders, Shirley Horn, Chancellor of Algoma University. Struck by Horn’s remarkable journey from residential school to Chancellor, he asked Shirley to collaborate on a work of art to tell her story, and that of her community, to Canadians. But how do we create art from such stories? Is art a necessary response? In this exclusive Algoma Fall Festival Conversation, Jesse Brown will engage Albert, Shirley and the audience in the first stage of a journey towards truth, art, and reconciliation.
