About the speaker

Positive change can come by the way of radical ideas, but we must be willing to reconstruct the environment in which these ideas exist. More opportunities can be created when we all collectively start to think differently.

To speak to this month’s global theme radical we’re honoured to welcome Waubgeshig Rice to the CreativeMornings Ottawa stage. Pulling a few key themes from his most recent novel, Moon of the Crusted Snow, Waubgeshig will encourage you to quiet your mind and think about a few areas you’re willing to shake things up. Together, let’s create a more radically profound, kind, and welcoming world.
