Spring 2022 Event

Knowledge Mobilization Forum: Sharing Knowledge with Indigenous Communities

June 13, 10:30am-1:30pm, The Arboretum, University of Guelph

The Waterloo Wellington Knowledge Mobilization Community invites you to join us in person on June 13 at the University of Guelph Arboretum to participate in conversations about knowledge systems and approaches to engagement with Indigenous peoples, tour the Wisahkotewinowak Tea Garden, and experience the Mtigwaaki: Among the Trees interpretive walk.

Our goal is to offer knowledge mobilization practitioners the opportunity to hear and learn from various projects and partnerships that weave together Indigenous and Western understandings of knowledge creation and exchange as we reflect on and enrich our practice.

This learning event is part of the 2022 Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum and is sponsored by Research Impact and the University of Guelph.

Where: University of Guelph Arboretum Auditorium (see map). Free parking is available on-site.

• 11:00 am – Table discussions (outdoors, if weather permitting), guided tour of Tea Garden and Mtigwaaki: Among the Trees interpretive walk

• 12:30 pm – Lunch (option to sit indoors or outdoors, weather permitting)

Cost: there is no registration fee

Please bring a medical-style mask, refillable water bottle, and weather-appropriate clothing for the guided walk. This event will take place rain or shine!
