This online event centers Black and Indigenous solidarity through cross-cultural exchanges on environmental racism in Mi’kma’ki. We will bring together speakers and performers to share stories and experiences of environmental racism through storytelling, dance, spoken word, song, and graphic art. Collaborators will describe their experiences and present their original creation in the form of a Zoom event followed by a panel discussion presented with the support of Arts Nova Scotia.
