PEGASUS Institute will be hosting a Creative Arts Event on Global Health, Equity, Promoting Indigenous Knowledge and Environmental Sustainability, August 26-28, 2022, on Wolfe Island, Ontario. This 3 day creative arts event will directly engage a diverse spectrum of community members, including participants and arts who are Indigenous, refugees and those from underserved/ unheard communities, scholars, students, faculty, activists and advocates and many others through virtual platforms, video recordings and a large public music event. The purpose of this weekend event is to actively engage attendees in designing, collaborating on, and participating in creating various forms of art with a focus on inspiring and producing action and social change. There will be a focus on engaging and promoting young Refugee and Indigenous Artists, providing a means of cultural expression and a vehicle for the maintenance and transmission of culture and social activism, promoting equity, human rights, health and well-being. The second stream of the event will focus on engaging with internationally trained Refugee Health Professionals, providing opportunities for documenting their experiences, knowledge and wisdom and providing opportunities for learning, networking and sharing on integrating into the Canadian healthcare system and seeking alternative career paths in Global Health.
