AFCOOP Spring GM 2023

Please join AFCOOP staff, board and membership for our Spring GM on Apr. 20 @ 6:30pm in-person in the Light House Arts Centre (1800 Argyle Street, Suite 303). At this meeting, staff will provide updates on what AFCOOP has been up to in the last quarter and what we have planned for the coming season. We will vote new Full Members in to the co-op, there will be time for members to talk about their own projects, and we’ll have one more round of trivia as we bid farewell to our dear friend (and trusted quizmaster) Iain MacLeod.

AFCOOP acknowledges that we are located in Kjipuktuk in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaw, Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet), and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1726. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaw and Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations. We are all treaty people.
