This year was to be our fourth Symposium. Originally scheduled for May on the beautiful territory of Six Nations Grand River, we had to postponed due to COVID. Then it became clear that even our late October postponement dates were not going to happen. So we shifted to the idea of Mini-Symposium – nine simultaneous, one day events held around the province with a digital connection, local artists, guest speakers and a real community feel. Sadly, we were unable to move forward with that due to COVID also. What we were able to do was reach out to our amazing presenters and ask them to pre-record their presentations for us to post online. Then, we scheduled one live Question & Answer period a month (November 2020, January & February 2021) where members could ask the presenters questions and get their advice and feedback. These Q&A’s were then posted on our YouTube channel with the presentations.
