Knowledge Mobilization Forum: Sharing Knowledge with Indigenous Communities
Date and Time
The Arboretum, University of Guelph- 200 Arboretum Road Guelph, ON N1G 2W1
The Waterloo Wellington Knowledge Mobilization Community invites you to join us in person on June 13 at the University of Guelph Arboretum from 10:30am-1:30pm. This event will bring together knowledge mobilization practitioners and community engaged researchers (faculty, staff, students and others) to reflect about knowledge systems and approaches to engagement with Indigenous peoples, tour the Wisahkotewinowak Tea Garden, and experience the Mtigwaaki: Among the Trees interpretive walk. Our goal is to offer knowledge mobilization practitioners the opportunity to hear and learn from various projects and partnerships that weave together Indigenous and Western understandings of knowledge creation and exchange as we reflect on and enrich our practice. A picnic-style lunch will be provided.
The agenda for this event is as follows:
- 10:30 am - Welcome (indoors at Arboretum Centre)
- 11:00 am - Table discussions (outdoors, if weather permitting), guided tour of Tea Garden and Mtigwaaki: Among the Trees interpretive walk
- 12:30 pm - Lunch (individually-portioned picnic-style lunch provided, with the option to sit indoors or outdoors, weather permitting)
