Edmonton hosts first of three national programs.
The Canadian Native Friendship Centre was the location of the first of three OSMOSIS programs to be delivered in Canada. The four-day event, held from Nov. 22-25, brought Indigenous and non-Indigenous young people together to discover, dream, design and deliver a desired future. It is inter-generational, fostering the exchange of ideas between Elders, youth and the wider Edmonton community. The gathering addressed the goal of understanding the impact of the Indian Residential School, looking for ways forward to build on the best of the past. OSMOSIS is a program delivered by IEmergence to engage youth. The event kicked off at City Hall.
