AN EVENING WITH JESSE WENTE,  Broadcaster, Advocate & Pop Culture Philosopher

“Indigenous Peoples, Minorities and Multiculturalism”

Friday, Nov. 30 @ 7:30 pm  |  Borochov Cultural Centre, 272 Codsell Ave.

Rabbi Denise will begin the evening with a Chanukah candlelighting and brief discussion of the holiday and what it teaches us about minorities and multiculturalism.

Mr. Wente will discuss Indigenous and Newcomer relations in Canada, including the complexities for      minority groups, such as Jews, who have their own histories of oppression. He will enlighten us about   challenges facing Indigenous communities and some ways we can work to foster reconciliation. His talk will be followed by a Q+A.

Jesse Wente has appeared on CBC Radio’s Metro Morning as film and pop culture critic for 20 years. He previously served as Director of Film Programmes, at TIFF Bell Lightbox, where he oversaw theatrical, Cinematheque and Film Circuit programming. A self-described ‘Ojibwe dude’ with a national and international lens, he encourages audiences to consider diversity and inclusion into the future view of their organization, industry and country.

This event is generously sponsored by Susan and Roderick McLeod.
