The Art Gallery of York University is working in partnership with artists Amoya Reé, Keosha Love, and The Poet MJ on Truthsgiving 2020, a one-day virtual festival taking place on October 10th from 2-8 pm that reimagines and redefines Thanksgiving by challenging its colonial roots. Deconstructing the mythology that has shaped the holiday in Canada and the United States, this day of workshops and performances will shine a light on the suppressed histories and enduring legacy of imperial/settler genocide and oppression. Powered by Our Women's Voices.

Truthsgiving will begin with a discussion facilitated by The Poet MJ that will explore strategies for decolonizing Thanksgiving. This discussion will be followed by three separate workshops. The first will be led by Sylvia Plain, a member of Aamjiwnaang First Nation, a water walker, and founder of the Great Lakes Journey, who will facilitate a workshop on Indigenous food sovereignty. Abdifatah Hussein, a spoken word poet, Black Muslim youth advocate, and founding member of Hidaayah House, will lead our second workshop on decolonizing BIPOC mental health and well-being. Our final workshop is on radical healing and gratitude and will be facilitated by Sincerely Shyy, who is a Toronto-based wellness practitioner, spoken word poet, and educator.

The workshops will be followed by a performance showcase featuring a phenomenal lineup of artists including musician and educator Mahlikah Awe:ri, spoken word poet Lul Yoseph, Reggae singer Kirk Diamond, dancer Keylah, and a surprise guest DJ.

  • 2pm - Open Discussion with The Poet MJ: What does Thanksgiving mean to you? Exploring strategies to re-define and decolonize Thanksgiving
