Fresh Dialogues with Alexandre Trudeau
March 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Hosted by the Fresh Outlook Foundation (FOF), Fresh Dialogues is a series of grass-roots conversations intended to inform, inspire, and innovate solutions to critical community issues. Each event tackles a single issue through an evening keynote and/or a community workshop.
Join us March 15th as FOF hosts another Fresh Dialogues event with author, journalist, and documentary filmmaker Alexandre Trudeau (yes, Justin’s brother). He’ll explore Canadian history, while offering an alternative perspective on the important link between past events and future successes.
From pre-Columbian times through the early explorers, and into the complicated nation-building of the 19th and 20th centuries, Trudeau will spin a tale of a different Canada than the one held up now in our comfortable times. He’ll argue that to meet the challenges of the new age, we must make peace with our true past, no matter how raw and difficult it is, and draw strength from it.
Trudeau’s keynote will be followed by a panel discussion including him along with local history experts Duane Thomson, Wayne Wilson, Sharron Simpson, and Ken Mather.
