Tara will be providing musical accompaniment, reprieve, and performance for this innovative conversation on reconciliation.
For settlers, reconciliation requires the ability and the will to acknowledge, to absorb, and confront failures. As a practice embedded in several cultures and traditions, clowning disrupts conventional understanding of, and relationships to failure and success. For the clown, the path to success is often informed and enriched through a fearless relationship with failure. Given this unique privileging of the potential and possibilities achieved through failure, clowns may be well positioned to offer unique insights and tools into important actions of advancing (radical) reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in the place we now call Canada.
