Proud to present Episode 8 of ‘Talking to Canadians,’ featuring my lengthy and highly engaging conversation with Emma Blue. We are entitling this episode “The Continuing Conversation: The Need for Dialogue.”
The title of this episode is drawn from the many insights and observations made by Emma about how social change and institutional responsiveness require that dialogue take place not just between persons, but also between persons and institutions. Emma is deeply involved in helping young adults and marginalized youth engage with social institutions. One of her passions is finding ways to bring the experiences and stories of youth into the public eye and she does this through work with the London Youth Advisory Council (LYAC) and in London’s non-profit sector. She does this, I should add, while enrolled as a full-time student in Media Theory and Production, a joint programme between Western University and Fanshawe College.
In addition to her many talents, Emma is also an accomplished spoken word poet.
I hope that you can tune in: https://ryanoconnor.ca/talkingtocanadians/2017/6/25/talking-to-canadians-episode-8
