Our Shared Legacy – Our History – Our Humanity

November 25, 2023 - 10:00 - 16:00

On November 25, 2023, at the National Gallery of Canada, the signatories to the United Nations Declaration for People (UNDPAD) will gather for a program entitled Our Shared Legacy; Our History – Our Humanity.

The program will centre on the theme of Ubuntu, with conversations on literacy, legacy, humanity, and dignity. In a three-part symposium participants will gather in a safe space for conversation, reflect on milestone anniversaries and share legacies we are creating for the better being of generations.

The event will begin at 10 am and end at 4 pm ET, with a lunch break in between. The schedule is composed of two primary sessions. The morning session will focus on a reflection period in which we will hear from signatories and celebrate important figures such as Ignatius Sancho by portraying art pieces and other sources of history. The afternoon session includes a question and answer period from Keynote Speaker Tom Zoellner, author of Island on Fire: The Revolt that Ended Slavery in the British Empire.

Lunch is provided at an additional cost. If you are looking to purchase lunch, please select the ticket option with lunch in order to secure your lunch voucher.
