Disability, Access, Equity and Education at STFX

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on July 29, 2019 in Events

A two-day gathering on August 26th-27th will explore questions of disability, access, equity and education from diverse perspectives. The main goals of this gathering are to share knowledge, inspire curiosity, and develop meaningful relationships among people and groups in the interest of creating and sustaining equitable and welcoming communities.

The program includes activities designed to stimulate conversation and creative approaches to disability and difference in university, education, work and community settings. Conversations will be guided by invited leaders from across the Atlantic region and Central and Western Canada. This will provide a foundation for a network connecting universities, organizations and communities. Activities will take place at the Charles V. Keating Millennium Centre. Day 1 will close with a networking dinner at the Social Enterprise and Convention Centre, 75 St. Ninian Street, Antigonish.
