Creative Catalyst Workshop | COMING SOON - REGISTRATION CLOSED

Online, Worldwide

Looking through the Indigenous Lens

A workshop of the Creative Catalyst Series

A group of participants at a Partners for Youth training stand in a circle with their arms around each other

We all hold unconscious implicit biases about ourselves and others based on our identities. These biases get in the way of recognizing the strengths and values in ourselves and others. Using indigenous stories and perspectives, Canadian First Nations facilitator Kelly Terbasket will explore ways to uncover our implicit biases and live with more curiosity, openness, self-awareness and acceptance.
