The Circle of Indigenous Nations Society (COINS) and the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute (KATI) are joining together to host a free, two-day symposium dedicated to exploring the interplay between hope and environmental justice.

The organizations are extending a special invitation to youth (under 30) and Indigenous participants, but everyone is welcome to attend the event on June 13 – 14.

Healing the Land, Healing the Heart: A Symposium on Eco-Justice & Hope will take place in a hybrid format with online sessions the first day and in-person sessions the second day in Castlegar.
