Learning Forward BC would like to invite participants from the April 2018 “From Poster to Practice” dinner and dialogue to come together for a second session.

This session was inspired from your requests and feedback. Please join LFBC, Brad Baker and Stephanie Maki as we continue this critical conversation, collaborate to deepen our awareness, share our progress and look for new opportunities to go move forward in our collective understanding of the Indigenous Would View.




Join Brad Baker, Stephanie Maki and a group of North Shore teachers and administrators.
