Event description

Description


Please join the Victoria Foundation on September 26th for On The Table, conversations about community connections. On The Table is an opportunity for you to share and hear unique perspectives about what is important in your community – what you love and what concerns you – around a table with your neighbours.

Belonging is a key issue area for the Victoria Foundation and our On The Table themes reflect the importance of belonging. In our 2018 Vital Signs report, Belonging and Engagement rated a B- and touches 12 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. Many people are feeling disconnected and wish to be more involved in community. On The Table will explore what contributes to this sense of disconnection while creating an opportunity for connection. Each specific theme has been chosen by a local youth who will join you at the table as a conversation host.

There is no homework, no preparation and no presentations. Just good conversation over food. Please choose your time and theme.

The event is free, but registration is required because space is limited. All conversations will take place at the Victoria Foundation boardroom at 200-703 Broughton Street. Our office is wheelchair accessible.

Please choose which time works best for you when you select your ticket:

  • Belonging, Standard of Living, and Breakfast with Bhupinder Dulku (8:00am-9:00am)
  • Belonging, No Hunger, and Lunch with Megan Dewar (11:00am-12:00pm)
  • Belonging, Arts & Culture, and Lunch with Shae-Linn Davies (1:00pm-2:00pm)
  • Belonging, Youth Engagement, and Appetizers with Asiyah Robinson (4:30-5:30)

RSVP by noon Monday, September 23rd.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We'll have a registration list.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

If you can't make it or think someone else would be a perfect fit to attend this event, please let us know.

How will participating make a difference in my community?

In addition to the new connections you will make, your ideas will help inform the work of the Victoria Foundation. Themes and ideas brought up at On The Table will provide us with a deeper understanding about our community which will enable us to be an effective catalyst for building and strengthening it.
