It willbe followed by a series of school talks, academic talks, workshops and artperformances. The second and third years are expected to explore respectivelythe history of LGBTQ rights and the impact of gay activism; as well as theliving memory and culture of indigenous peoples of Canada and Europe and thequestion of cultural erasure as a product of colonialism.
