Creative City Summit

October 1 – 3, 2024
Vancouver, BC

Creative City Network of Canada (CCNC) is honoured to welcome Salia Joseph as the keynote speaker for the 2024 Vancouver Creative City Summit on Tuesday, October 1, 2024.

Ms. Joseph offers a unique perspective to the work we do in local government.

Salia is from the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Snuneymuxw First Nations on her father’s side. On her mother’s side, Salia is British and Jewish. She is a graduate of the Critical Indigenous Studies program at the University of British Columbia. She is also the executive director of the Sníchim Foundation, a Sḵwx̱wú7mes (Squamish) language and culture non-profit.

Salia is also the co-owner of Host Consulting Inc. which is a public art consultancy focused on elevating the designs and work of Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleilwaututh artists.

She is very grateful to come from such generous people and is always looking at ways to show reciprocity.
