Performers:

Kate Reid: When Kate Reid shouts “all aboard,” she’s not kidding. Reid refined her whipsmart songwriting and warm, wise-cracking stage persona while recording and touring behind three previously released, critically acclaimed independent albums – Comin’ Alive (2006), I’m Just Warming Up (2009) and Doing it for the Chicks (2011) Hundreds of shows and festival dates since 2006 have earned the firebrand singer, songwriter, activist and educator a grassroots fan base drawn from every imaginable shade of the rainbow spectrum – proudly bent, comfortably straight and all flavors in between. Audiences respond with laughs, tears of recognition and lovingly fierce solidarity to a repertoire of originals that range from favorites like “Captain Cupcake and the Cambie Hotel”, “Co-op Girlz” and “Closet Femme” and “The Only Dyke at the Open Mic” to open-hearted, deeply affecting numbers about the often hard road walked by those healing from difficult life experiences and staying true to their unique identities. Reid’s fourth album, and her first for families, children and youth, carries her passion for inclusivity coast-to-coast on an express route to generation next. Queer Across Canada’s collection of groundbreaking tracks traverse a wide landscape of family scenarios as it sensitively addresses (with rootsy rock’n’roll verve) such contemporary realities as surrogate moms, donor dads, same-sex parents, out-of-the-closet fathers, blended families and queer-curious siblings. www.katereid.com

Fredlocks Asher & The Ultra Flex Crew: Fredlocks Asher & The Ultra Flex Crew has released a variety of musically diverse reggae albums, including Wisdom, Dub Life, Ultra Flex Volume one, and More Loving. He is now set to release two full length solo album this year “Race the Final Frontier” and “Ultra Flex Volume Two” Now available on itunes as of Feb 2013. “Some imitate while others create”, Fredlocks Asher & The Ultra Flex Crew have been creating new cutting edge reggae for a life time. Fredlocks is an original Jamaican reggae artist, performing the full spectrum of this art form, including all the sub-genres of Dancehall, Dub, Electronica, Lovers Rock, Jungle, and Roots Rock Reggae.

 Chief Rock: Twelve years ago in the dingy reaches of Canada’s most industrialized centre, Chief Rock began his performing career. What was once a sprawling Iroquoi heartland of the Six Nations, Hamilton now seems the most unlikely setting to re-cultivate the trampled Native culture… but this hasn’t stopped Rock from dawning his head dress. Chief Rock joined the Kanata Native Dance Theater where he mastered, not only 4 different styles of traditional Native dance, but also stage awareness and physical ‘storytelling’. Shortly thereafter the internationally renowned Red Thunder dance group invited him to join their tour. Chief Rock has also danced in three music videos for EMI, including Tom Cochraine’s “I Wonder” and Susan Aglukhark “One Hand Turns Another.” Long before he had dawned the traditional beads and feathers, Rock was scuffing his sneakers as a B-Boy. His current mission is to spread a message with his voice. Chief Rock writes and produces all of his own material, mixes, masters and records in Purple Ku$H Studioz. He was nominated for a Native American Music Award, in the Best Rap/Hip Hop category and his clever blend of traditional Native culture with the hottest contemporary musical genre could easily be the new combination to catch the attention of today’s young people.

Date of event November 4th, 2013
Location of event Vancouver School Board

The most recent census data has shown that 20 percent of all Canadians were born outside of Canada. In urban areas such as Metro Vancouver, that number jumps to over 50 percent. Add to that linguistic, cultural and religious diversity of both Canadian born and immigrant students and the face of the average Canadian student is difficult to describe. So what is happening in Education? Are teachers, school boards and the curriculum keeping up with the rapid growth and change in the Canadian population? What are the benefits and challenges of a diverse student body? Some critics of the current education system call for multicultural, multi-centric curriculum and critical thinking. Others call for segregated schools to address racial achievement gaps and the failure of mainstream education to support marginalised learners. Still others are concerned accommodating diversity will result in lower standards.

Three invaluable champions of inclusion and importance of embracing diversity in education – a children's author, an education consultant, and an anti-racism and diversity consultant and mentor – will share their knowledge, experience and perspectives on the changing role of educators within the school system.

Date: November 4th, 2013
Time: 6 – 8 pm
6:00-6:30: Registration / mix and mingle
6:30-7:30: Panel Presentations
7:30-8:00: Questions and conclusion
Location: Vancouver School Board (G Level – Room 120)
Cost: Members Free: Non-members: $8.00 Students: $5.00
RSVP by: Nov 2nd. Please indicate your attendance via email at info@sietar.bc.ca

This event will include:

Safe, valued, included and represented: How students feel in a culturally-responsive classroom? – 20 minutes (Angela Brown)
Angela will share some culturally-responsive teaching practices, programs and initiatives that support anti-racism and diversity education. She will discuss the importance of co-developing class community agreements before engaging students in courageous conversations. The role of the teacher as a facilitator and the most influential resource in the classroom will be emphasized as empathy-building and experiential learning activities are shared. Join Angela,
Anti-racism and Diversity Mentor of the Vancouver Board of Education as she supports schools in fostering students’ social/emotional health and development, safety, and well-being by supporting equity and inclusion within Vancouver’s diverse school communities.

The importance of lobbying in education: Educating government officials and corporate officers of the merits of embracing diversity in education – 20 minutes (Trevor Ludski)
Awarded by the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal for his significant achievement and remarkable service to Canada in 2012, Trevor will focus his remarks on the necessity to lobby Ministry officials, school board officials and senior personnel to recognize the benefits of embracing diversity for the sake of our children's future. Trevor will provide examples of programs and services in some Ontario jurisdictions that have applicability in British Columbia and he will provide a few anecdotes of recent personal and professional experiences related to Aboriginal education, diversity and antiracist education.

Inspiring our children to become responsible, global citizens – 20 minutes (Navjot Kaur)
Navjot will contribute with her presentation on how to inspire our children to become advocates for social change and responsible citizens. Navjot Kaur, Children’s Author is fascinated and inspired by diverse environments and culture. Her first children's book , ‘A Lion's Mane’ won the 2010 Skipping Stones Honor Award for Multicultural and International Awareness.
