Host Organization: Faculty Of Arts And Social Sciences, Michaëlle Jean Foundation
Advancing Social Change
Please join us from September 27 to 29, 2013, as Canadians from across the country converge on Ottawa for a conference on improving the quality of life in our communities through the arts.
Co-hosted by the Michaëlle Jean Foundation and Carleton University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Forum will mobilize researchers, business leaders, legal experts, policymakers, youth, health practitioners, artists, and others to explore cutting-edge research and social innovation for bettering the lives of underserved Canadians and revitalizing communities.
Over three days, forum participants will explore ways in which grassroots youth organizations, arts communities and academia can work with sectors as varied as health, business, and law, to discuss issues such as youth crime, mental health, unemployment, and social exclusion, through the arts. Our goal is to produce a national agenda outlining ways in which all sectors of Canadian society can enhance grassroots strategies for inclusion, personal and community development, and prosperity for all Canadians.
The Power of the Arts Forum weekend will feature a town hall, plenary sessions and workshops, as well as a celebration of Canadian achievement in the arts.
