Staying at Home / Sharing Our One World
Our tenth Grey Bruce One World Festival — themed Imagining Our Inclusive Future and planned
for June 4th in downtown Owen Sound — has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
Since we cannot gather in person to celebrate our diversity this spring, we are inviting everyone
in Grey and Bruce counties to move the festivities to our Facebook page
— Please reach out and join your neighbours online by sharing something you’ve created to
celebrate our diversity and build a more inclusive community. Here are some suggestions to get
• sing a song
• draw a picture
• say “I miss you”
• teach a traditional children’s game
• tell a folk tale
• do a dance
• write a poem
• play a tune on a musical instrument
• tell us about your family’s heritage
• say “We are all at home on Earth — our one world.” in any language
• share a message of hope
—then post it on our Facebook page throughout the month of May.
With best wishes until we see each other next year,
The Inclusive Communities Committee of Grey and Bruce
You’re also invited to join our committee!
Would you like to make a difference in our community?
The Inclusive Communities Committee (ICC) and the Grey Bruce One World Festival invite you to join us — to help increase the participation, visibility and inclusion of all of the constituents of our diverse community.
We are seeking new members to attend committee meetings — to bring your ideas, enthusiasm, experience and energy to the annual Grey Bruce One World Festival, and to initiate other programs and events that celebrate the rich diversity in Grey and Bruce counties.
The ICC meets in downtown Owen Sound on the second Wednesday of each month, from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
Aside from their time commitment to meetings, members volunteer to take on particular tasks, as they are interested and able, in the run up to the festival — and most volunteer with the festival setup and cleanup, and are on hand during the event to help performers and presenters, and to enjoy the celebration.
If you would like to join the ICC, or know someone who you would like to suggest as a member, please get in touch. You can contact us through this site.
