Canada’s conversation about truth and reconciliation took the stage at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre on Thursday, where an esteemed panel discussed the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s observation that art “has the extraordinary ability to heal.” Former prime minister Joe Clark introduced the event, which was moderated by Dr. Marie Wilson, Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. Panellists included:
Rachael Maza, acclaimed Australian theatre director of Jack Charles V The Crown
Joseph Boyden, author of the award-winning novels Three Day Road and The Orenda
