"Weaving Baskets of Knowledge" Conference 2019

Join us June 5th to 9th 2019 for Conference in Fredericton, New Brunswick!

This coming June SC-CC is delighted to be working with the University of New Brunswick to host conference

We recognize and respectfully acknowledge that the University of New Brunswick is on the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) and Mi’kmaq Peoples. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) and Mi’kmaq Peoples first signed with the British crown in 1725.  

The theme for 2019's conference is Weaving Baskets of Knowledge
Akonutomahtimok: Askomiw Latokonasuwol Kcicihtuwakonol 

The weavers are the storytellers and the baskets of knowledge are the stories.  Stories educate and give us joy.  They are intergenerational.  Stories are a defining part of all cultures, a primary way we make meaning, and a fundamental component of what makes us social beings. What baskets will you share?

News! Registration is now open! 

SC-CC would like to thank the Literacy Coalition of New Brunswick and the University of New Brunswick for their support of this conference.
