The Motion Picture Production Industry Assn. of BC (MPPIA) invites BC’s production industry community to gather on Zoom for learnings in Decolonization led by Kim Haxton (Potowatomi) of Elevate Inclusion Strategies in Part Two of a special “Town Hall” presentation series:

Part Two: Reconciliation, Jun 3 pm to 4:30 pm PST

Registration via Zoom

Welcome Remarks: Sue Brouse, UBCP/ACTRA, MPPIA Equity & Inclusion Committee Co-Chair

Keynote Presentation: Kim Haxton (Potowatomi), Elevate Inclusion Strategies

Kim Haxton specializes in cross-cultural interpretation, applied decolonization & lateral liberation, as well as nature & land-based education.

“We are at a critical juncture right now – the future depends on literacy of the past understanding the structures and systems that bind us, so that we can make the shifts from cultures of make believe – a dominant culture that is steeped in a colonial narrative that are exclusionary and divisive – to one that supports and nourishes ourselves, each other and the worlds around us.” – Kim Haxton

This opportunity is the second in an educational series taking place in 2021 in three, two-part modules.  Each narrative session is the precursor to limited capacity training sessions that explore the learnings in more depth:

The MPPIA Equity & Inclusion Committee was established in early 2019 to help mobilize change for equitable and balanced representation in the BC-based motion picture production industry.

The Motion Picture Production Industry Association of BC (MPPIA) is a member-based, non-profit society established in April 2002 to grow, diversify and promote a competitive and sustainable motion picture production industry in British Columbia.
