Well over one hundred Indigenous community leaders, experts, and decision makers are expected to gather at Trent University February 18-21 for CINSA 2020, a conference co-hosted by the Urban Aboriginal Knowledge Network (UAKN), the Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies at Trent University, and CINSA.

This year’s conference will feature presentations, discussions, film screenings, and performances that highlight community-driven research on the theme of Imagining and Creating Indigenous Futures, particularly in urban spaces. Keynote speakers include Drew Hayden Taylor, one of Canada’s leading Native playwrights and humourists, and Sylvia Maracle, journalist, noted speaker, and world-changer.

Indigenous and non-Indigenous community leaders and administrators, program managers, policy makers, researchers, and students will benefit from attending and the public is welcome. Advance registration is required.
