CBC Saskatoon is proud to return as a sponsor of Threads: Cultural Conversations. 

This two-day online symposium is organized and hosted by the Saskatoon Open Door Society. It will be held virtually on January 19 and 20, 2022. 

Threads: Cultural Conversations uncovers the numerous issues, challenges and want that Newcomers, Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures face. The conversations are an exercise to help these different communities understand each other and essentially live in harmony, to settle and to belong anew.

Participatory sessions have been created to weave together knowledge, art, film, needlecraft, storytelling, philosophy, dance, music, poetry, games and more, to discuss and explore issues around what it means to thrive as diverse peoples.

This year's event will feature speakers such as Chief-Cadmus Delorme, Simon Anholt, and CBC's Omayra Issa in conversation with the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, CBC's Ginella Massa, and Kim Thúy. There will also be performances by various entertainment acts like Constantinople.

Threads: Cultural Conversations creates shared experiences to bring out cultural awareness, understanding and appreciation of diverse points of view. The program is able to do this by masterfully weaving theatre, spoken words, and much more.

With over a thousand participants from all over Canada and twenty- two countries around the world, Threads: Cultural Conversations promises to truly be a landmark event.
