The Gallery is excited to host the first of our multi-session speaker series Navigating Two Systems with John Chief Calf. In this first talk, John will discuss his perspectives on education and share the inspiration for this program series. In our first session, John will speak about challenges and complexities of living in two cultures. He will speak about navigating Indigenous and European environments and how they continue to be a constant challenge today. This event is free to attend. Light refreshments will be provided.
