GlobalFest Human Rights Forum 2021

GlobalFest’s 2021 commitment is to ‘Continue the Dialogue’. We are moving from a single weeklong series, to a more robust offering with additional stand-alone community forums to explore the findings of the main event. Our intent is to expand upon meaningful conversations and encourage action.

Tuesday 22 June: Community Design & Shopping Local
How community make up and design impacts a community (eg - the difference between Beltline with a autobody shop and Rossi coffee, vs Tuscany with a standard, franchise only, strip mall)
How shopping local impacts the economy and then taking a step further; how supporting local boosts the local economy and what that does to take people out of poverty.

Guest Speakers

  • David Low, Executive Director Victoria Park BIA (Business Improvement Area)
  • Erin Melnychuk, Local Economy Development Department Momentum Community Initiatives Manager

Wednesday 23 June: Community Conversations
Canadians are being confronted with details of the country’s racist past, and the current realities impacting everyone in our society. Join us as we talk to people in Calgary who are invested in anti-racism work to learn what is being done, what are the challenges being faced and discuss what strategies are working.

Guest speakers will be announced soon.

Thursday 24 June: Curriculum & Race
Race has been in the news. Curriculum has been in the news. But how do they coincide? How have students been taught about race in the past and present? How can parents and other members of the community support and contribute to the work being done in schools? Is leaving it all up to schools the answer? Join us as we have a conversation around curriculum, race and community.

Guest speakers will be announced soon.

All sessions are offered FREE
12:00 -1: 30 pm daily
