The Land You Came From, The Land You Are On

January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Location: Meet at The Bentway Skate Trail near the Skate Rentals, where you’ll travel as a group to Fort York National Historic Site. This workshop takes place both outdoors at a firepit and indoors.

Click here to register.

Gather around the fire for an evening of storytelling, knowledge sharing, and community warmth. Guided by the Talking Treaties Collective, this creative workshop invites newcomers to Tkaronto to learn first-hand knowledge of the history of this land and the people who cared for it, while also sharing their own stories and journey. This active workshop will happen around a warming firepit at Fort York National Historic Site, allowing for a deeper connection to nature and to each other.

Dress warmly because this workshop takes place both outdoors and indoors. Warm drinks and light refreshments will be provided.

What to expect:

  • While all of the programming at The Bentway is open to the public and free to intend, this event is intended for individuals who self-identify as a newcomer.
  • A creative workshop, with an emphasis on storytelling and group activities
  • A portion of this workshop will take place outdoors.
  • There is approximately 10 minutes of walking to the firepit at Fort York.
  • Light refreshments will be offered to workshop participants.

The Bentway is committed to supporting the full participation of all attendees. Please contact [email protected] with any questions or access needs prior to the event.
