The mission of the Dawson College Peace Centre is to achieve peace and nonviolence through education an action. To that end, this year’s selected theme of Reconciliation and Restoration exemplifies our mission, vision and values. This year the Centre will focus on projects and activities that engender healing, understanding, compassion and collaboration. True social change can only come to pass with genuine action firmly rooted in the principles that define reconciliation and restoration. Healing the world is a process and no small feat, however, only through collaborative compassionate community action we hope to effect change.

A new exhibition, Skén:nen, is helping spread the message of peace and decolonization throughout Dawson College’s student body. The exhibition, which opened last night at the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery, features over two-dozen works by Indigenous artists across Canada. “We wanted artists to be able to present work that fell into that as a very broad topic in how one interprets peace and how one interprets decolonization,” said co-curator and organizer Orenda Boucher-Curotte.
