Cedar Tea Break

Cedar Tea Break is a great opportunity for members of the performing arts sector to join with a local to regional Indigenous Leader and Presenter/Arts Administrator team to ask questions, discuss realities, and learn more about how you can grow relationships with Indigenous Neighbours. Each Cedar Tea Break takes place virtually on Zoom; please note that registration is required for the event.

Summer is almost here and with it comes the return of another Cedar Tea Break! We are so excited to have Councillor Merv Sarazin, Algonquin from Pikwakanagan First Nation and Executive Director Courtney Gehling as well as retired Executive Director Robin Etherington from the Bytown Museum in Ottawa join us to tell the story of how their relationships began and continue to evolve in support of the ByTown Museum as a place that holds Indigenous presence on the land and in the space.

Bi-Weekly Cedar Tea Breaks

Beginning in February, Administrative Director Terri-Lynn Brennan is expanding this program to make Cedar Tea Breaks bi-weekly, as an opportunity for members of the performing arts sector to chat with Terri over their tea about all things EDIAD. The focus on learning more about how you can grow relationships with Indigenous Neighbors from local to regional Indigenous Leader and Presenter/Arts Administrator teams will also continue each month (team availability pending) but feel free to join in a conversation every other Friday at 11 am beginning February 16th, 2024 to continue expanding your commitment to EDIAD in all you do.
