Minutes of KW Peace Subcommittee planning meeting July 19, 2017

In attendance: Laura, Gehan, Emily

  • We need to change the Date to September 30th
    • Doesn’t fit in with Centre for Peace Advancement (Grebel)’s peace week
    • But the 23rd conflicts with Shiv’s annual SHEN conference, probably overlapping people
    • Also Matt is no longer able to attend the 23rd
    • Venue is available the 30th as well
  • Title of event- Perspectives on Peace: Peace in our Community
  • Booth fair
    • Instead of discussion groups at the end, have the different groups involved have booths and people can wander and talk to group representatives as they please

      • ┬áMelissa Webster: anti-poverty. Confirmed
      • Gehan: Intercultural dialogue. Confirmed
      • Trudy: community development. To be asked by Bob
      • Lori Campbell: Aboriginal reparations. To be asked by Emily
    • We should have an honourarium for the speakers, but with what money
    • Questions for panel
      • Who are you, what is your group and personal perspective on Peace in the Community
