Reflections on the ARPA tour

Note: See poet A. Blokhuis’ reflection on the fall tour and broader work we are doing together here.

The ARPA Canada national tour has already hit 14 locations with about 2,600 people in attendance. That is more than double what we have seen in the past couple years and five times as many as when we started. Every audience was both incredibly supportive/engaged and yet unique. Thank you!

At the Fergus event on Wednesday evening (Nov. 6) our friend David VanVeen (pictured right) delivered a short message at the end, his own reflections on the issue of education which he prepared beforehand. We promised to post his comments online. If you’d like to read the one-page text of his speech, click on the PDF linked below. Thanks Dave for your contribution and support!
