On October 13, 2012 an intergenerational learning and youth exchange took place at Circle of Life Thunderbird House in Winnipeg.
In attendance were four elders and 30 students from Community Education Development Association’s (CEDA) Pathways to Education program, Collège Béliveau, and Grant Park High School. The idea was to bring together people who would otherwise not meet in person, to share ideas, and talk about things that are often not talked about openly in Winnipeg.
For the purposes of the event, youth were asked to talk about racism and their perceptions of, or experiences in, the inner city. The hope was to shrink the divide between people who live in the inner city and those who live in the suburbs by engaging youth in dialogue.
