Encountering Democracy: A Civics Salon – video and discussion

Jackie Kennelly explores “Is democracy a fact of civic life, or does it depend on a person’s access to power and resources?  The below event came out of a research project I did with homeless youth in Ottawa, and the films that will be screened are three short films documenting the issues they identified as most important. Please join us if you can!”

Encountering Democracy: A Civics Salon
Thursday, September 22, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
OAG Annex Gallery at City Hall, 110 Laurier Ave. West

In Canada’s capital city, democratic processes seem to be all around us. Yet who is excluded from having their voices heard? Is democracy a fact of civic life, or does it depend on a person’s access to power and resources?

Join us at the Ottawa Art Gallery Annex at City Hall for a screening and discussion led by Dr. Jacqueline Kennelly. Participate in answering the question: How do you experience democracy?

This event is free and everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served. Free childcare will be provided. For additional accessibility requests, please contact: Stephanie Nadeau at 613-233-8699 +227, or public@ottawaartgallery.ca

Presented by the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Carleton University, in collaboration with Citizens Academy and Ottawa Art Gallery.
