TRC cross-cultural dialogue event invite-1In the last couple days I presented a new initiative to acknowledge and engage the arts across sectors to the World Policy Institute‘s board, and then flew to Toronto to attend A Cross Cultural Dialogue: Exploring Reconciliation Through Philanthropy convened by a group of Canadian funders with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.  For the former, the WPI Arts-Policy Nexus work has begun in the shape of a blog series by artists on policy issues and – in full form – will be an incubator that facilitates deep engagement between artists and policymakers.  For the latter, Global Arts Corps has been engaged by its Canadian partners to consider how its theatre approach can be supportive to the Truth Commission in its final year.
