Call for Submissions for Workshops



In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Canadian Federation and the 140th anniversary of Treaty 6, the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights is proud to host Ignite Change: A Global Gathering for Human Rights.This event will bring together people who are, individually or with others, acting to promote or protect human rights.

The audience will include beginners, activists, educators and mentors focused on collective dialogue on critical human rights issues facing Canada and the world while building strategies to affect positive change. Four issues have been identified as critical to the landscape of human rights defenders. The topics that will be explored during the Gathering will include: Hate; Drugs; Arms; and Human Trafficking.

Ignite Change will reflect on the global and local realities of these four issues, discuss root causes, identify solutions and strengthen our collective capacity to move forward as Canadians; reconciling a difficult past.

The Global Gathering team is seeking dynamic and innovative people to present workshops and creative sessions or spaces that will support our goal of strengthening collective commitment and action as well as deepen the discourse on these four identified topics.

The workshops should fulfill the following criteria:
Relevance - the workshop/session/space should either be an educational opportunity to deepen dialogue and learning on the four issues at within the global and/or local communities; or it should be a skills building opportunity that will enable people with practical applications and tools to advance human rights in their community or globally.
Ingenuity - the workshop/session/space may be presented in a variety of media  such as roundtable, panel, dance, visual arts, spoken word, theatre… feel free to be creative with your suggestions and think outside the box!
Presentation - all presentations should be culturally relevant  and sensitive, as participants will be from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences.

Julie Ali Can we have Ruth Adria speak about elder abuse and how we are to work together to solve the problems in legislation, oversight and lack of penalties? I am specifically interested in Ruth Adria presenting the facts about her experience with retribution which is used to silence advocates in the system. The government of Alberta is fully complicit in this silencing since it created the Trespass to Premises legislation used by authorities to ban advocates and separate families from loved ones in care. When will there be full disclosure by the GOA of these problems and the repercussions on advocates which go beyond banning and tickets to legal threat and lawsuits?
