Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship

2017 Laureate - Ai Weiwei

September 27, 2017

Doors open at 7:30 pm

Come see Ai Weiwei accept the Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship. The visionary Chinese artist and activist will discuss his complicated life and controversial work with former Gov. Gen. Adrienne Clarkson. The event will also include remarks by John Ralston Saul and a musical performance by Dione Taylor with Sharon Riley and Faith Chorale, as well as pianist Robi Botos.

The marquee event at 6 Degrees Citizen Space, the Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship is awarded annually to a leader whose life has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to the ideals of belonging and inclusion. Through words, actions and results, this individual has encouraged thought and dialogue, approaches and strategies that strive to remove barriers, change attitudes, and reinforce the principles of tolerance and respect.

6 Degrees Citizen Space is a 3-day event that connects thinkers and doers to drive the global conversation on inclusion and citizenship. This year’s speakers include Margaret Atwood, Kent Monkman, Michael Sandel, Bernhard Schlink, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Niigaan Sinclair, George Elliot Clarke, and many more.
