Chebucto Connections

Bonnie Ste-Croix has been working to build communities for more than 20 years.  Her unique combination of live artistic performance as a singer-songwriter and depth of experiences as a community developer have ensured that storytelling permeates everything she does. Her philosophies are grounded in relationship-building and human connection as the key to change-making and this has been key in her work with Spryfield’s Chebucto Connections.  Both solutions-focused and unfazed by divergent views, Bonnie invited many local partners to join in dialogue about complex gaps in access to community services for residents.  This strength-based collaborative approach is where ECHO Hub was born.  Bonnie’s community development work has been predominately done in Nova Scotia and British Columbia.  Songwriting has taken her to all 13 provinces and territories where she worked with local artists and absorbed stories and culture from indigenous and non-indigenous communities alike.  Bonnie’s current areas of passion are poverty-reduction, supporting truth and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and learning from United Nations academics/professionals about their experiences worldwide.  https://ca.linkedin.com/in/bonnie-ste-croix-26333052
