Confluence Listening Circle Dedication

Confluence Collaborates with the Wapato Valley School, Workshop for Life-Long Learners

June 30, 2015

Confluence is working in collaboration with the Wapato Valley School and many other organizations to launch a project that aims to transform identities and relationships through place-based, experiential education.

Learn more about this course on place, the history of the Northwest, identity and the environment. All of the courses will take place at sites of cultural or geological significance and provide opportunities to learn more about this land and to reflect on what it means to live where we do and with all that has come before us.

If you are interested to learn more about these topics, to explore your identity in relationship to place, to reflect on the history of colonization and connect all of this to contemporary social and environmental justice issues then check out these exciting offerings! 

Title: Transformations on the Columbia: Contact, Colonization and Decolonization

Time: August 30th from 10:00 AM  6:00 PMmore >
