As signatories to Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord, the Children’s Museum is committed to promoting deeper intercultural understanding, increased empathy, and mutual respect within our community. With these goals in mind, the Children’s Museum will be hosting Circles for Reconciliation this fall, and is currently seeking Circle participants.

About Circles for Reconciliation
Circles for Reconciliation is a grassroots project that establishes local discussion groups in order to build trusting, meaningful relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples as part of the 94 Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
A Circle consists of weekly 90-minute guided discussions for 10 weeks.
Each Circle must consist of 10 people – 5 Indigenous and 5 non-Indigenous. The group is led by two trained facilitators, one Indigenous and one non-Indigenous.
