On May 15 and 16th 2018, youth and adult knowledge brokers from across Canada rallied in Toronto for Wisdom2Action’s event on Youth Engagement: Sharing What Works. Cliff Ballantyne (Sturgeon Lake First Nation), Bernadette Bernard (Eskasoni First Nation), Alyssa Frampton-Fudge (Halifax), and Jimmy Tan (Toronto) from the ACCESS Open Minds National Youth Council and Chantelle Mireault (Partnerships & Stakeholder Engagement Coordinator) attended the event which was hosted by Muna Mohamed, Fae Johnstone and the W2A’s youth team.
The interactive two day conversations followed the Art of Hosting facilitation style and focused on themes related to youth engagement including anti-oppression framework, youth led initiatives, youth research, technology and evaluation. Discussions were documented artistically through a jaw dropping mural included below.
