A DAY TO LISTEN 2022:
MESSAGES OF HOPE
6am – 6pm local time, Friday, September 30 on radio stations across Canada
In recognition of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF) is proud to partner once again with major media outlets and radio stations throughout Canada for A DAY TO LISTEN 2022.
This year’s programming focuses on highlighting cultural reclamation, language resurgence, art practice, and land-based learning narratives. We aim to look at what we can do as a country as we move forward by highlighting and featuring Indigenous Peoples who are engaged, working, and living within the four streams and show how we can continue to move forward with hope for future generations of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
With more than 540 radio stations participating, spanning different markets, regions, and formats, A DAY TO LISTEN aims to leverage the power of radio to move reconciliation forward in meaningful ways.
The mission of DWF is to create a pathway towards reconciliation, and to improve the lives of Indigenous people by building awareness, education, and connections between all Canadians. #dosomething
