Taking place at the same time, and in the margins of, the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII18), the Tracking Change Global Knowledge Symposium brings together academic and community researchers from across three countries, seven academic institutions and sixty local and Indigenous communities and organizations. These project participants and champions are meeting to share results, discuss good practice and plan a path for ongoing research.

We invite interested attendees of the UNPFII18, and others, to join us on the evening of May 2nd, 2019 to for a unique documentary play, with music, about our complex and sometimes unseen relationship with oil.

The Tar Sands Songbook is brought to us by Tanya Kalmanovitch with accompaniment by Andrew Boudreau.

Following the performance, Tanya Kalmanovitch will hold a discussion period about the relationship to oil and Tar Sands, as well as about the piece itself and her own personal experience.
