*Please note* This session is specifically for cultural professionals who identify as Indigenous, Black, or a Person of Colour. Thank you for respecting this safe space. 

Join the BCMA and Madison Tardif for the latest IBPOC Museum Professionals Network webinar on community-care! In this session, participants will be provided with resources and tools to think about their own identity and positionality in relation to their professional, interpersonal, and communal relationships. As a starting point for engaging with themes of anti-racism, community, building and self-preservation in harmful systems, this session will focus on empowering individuals to employ acts of radical self- and community- care.

Please note that this session will involve breakout rooms, and to encourage a sense of safety, we ask participants to have their cameras on.

Madison is of mixed Afro-Indigenous and European ancestry and currently resides and works on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tseleil-Waututh territory. It is through her own lived experience as a multiracial person that Madison began exploring concepts of identity, power, privilege, and systems of oppression.

During her graduate degree, she furthered understanding of community engagement, systems change, and decolonization. Her research focused on policy and decision-making in Indigenous self-governments and gave her a different perspective on leadership, community-centred decision-making, and decolonial approaches to governance.

Since then, her passion for human rights and community-building has led her into a career focused on promoting justice, equity, decolonization, indigenization, and anti-racism. In her current role as an Equity Education Strategist at the University of British Columbia, Madison focuses on anti-oppression through capacity-building, conflict engagement, education, and community-care.
