Indigenous Wellbeing Gathering Conference
A huge thank you from the Urban Indigenous Wellbeing Collective to everyone that attended and helped make the inaugural Indigenous Wellbeing Gathering Conference a success. The October 2023 gathering was a two-day, multidisciplinary event that brought together Elders, researchers, trainees, and community partners to address community-identified research priorities and foster cross-university and community networks. With a keynote speech from Senator Margo Greenwood, guest speeches from Dr. Kim Anderson and Dr. Alex Wilson, interactive roundtables, panel discussions, and artistic presentations, the gathering provided a space for learning and exchange on the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health of community members across generations.
As we reflect on the success of this year's event, we invite you to look through the gathering's photos below and keep an eye out for updates on our upcoming 2024 gathering. To stay informed about future events and initiatives, we encourage you to sign up for our newsletter here. Your contribution has been instrumental in making the Indigenous Wellbeing Gathering a success.
Thank you for being a part of this enriching experience.
