Rethinking Canada's 150: Human Library and Arts Showcase

Next Up Ottawa welcomes you to: “Rethinking Canada's 150: Human Library and Arts Showcase", a mashup event to bring alternative discourses to the mainstream narrative of Canada’s 150th anniversary. Artists and human library "books" will share stories on issues such as migrant justice and decolonization. 

This is a FREE event. Everyone is welcome. Snacks will be served.

*We welcome and value the contributions that individuals who identify as members of marginalized communities and groups bring, and encourage Indigenous peoples, people of colour, women, queer and/or trans people, single parents, members of ethnic minorities, migrants, people with disabilities, and all others who face systemic discrimination to join us.*
