TRANSFORMATIONS: A ‘Cure’ for Poverty

By Justin Johnson / Segal Centre

A ‘Cure’ for Poverty is all about our relationship to the fuel that keeps the world turning and the inevitable sickness that comes from the lack of it. Poverty. The elephant in the room of society's problems. It's a challenge for society to look into the dirty parts of the mirror we tend to ignore, face up to the disparity of resources that exist, and take a step to help out in whatever way we can.

The Segal Centre is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka people. The land was also a diplomatic meeting place with other Iroquoians and Algonquians including Algonquin-Anishinaabe, Atikamekw, and Huron-Wendat. We acknowledge that we are located on a land that has been the site of human creativity and storytelling for thousands of years, and are thankful that we are able to create, collaborate, play, and work here.
