The 2018 Kaqa'nata Multicultural & Diversity Summit is a great opportunity for individuals, businesses, organizations and their staff to learn, share, grow and implement new strategies on cultural understanding and diverse populations in Nova Scotia and across Canada.
Hosted by the Wagmatcook Culture & Heritage Centre this event has been years in the making. From our experience in hosting local to international visitors the opportunity to learn about many different cultures is at an all time high.
Their eagerness to understand Indigenous and other multicultural ways of life in Canada began to open up new discussions. Soon we approached local groups about partnering on an event where this sharing and learning can broaden into the local cultures found in grassroots communities across Nova Scotia.
Fast forward a few years and here we are, planning the event we always spoke about and now delivering on this idea!
From our keynote presentations, cultural performances in music and dance to the traditional protocols and tasty foods that will be offered, this event is sure to bring a fresh new perspective to your shared experience.
We look forward to hosting you on our opening nights on Tuesday, June 26th starting at 6:00pm!
