Concurrent Experiential Workshop: Kairos Blanket Exercise

Wednesday May 15   01:00 PM to 05:00 PM (4 hours)
Evergreen Brick Works

This experiential workshop takes place at Evergreen Brick Works. No travel required. Please dress in comfortable shoes and clothing.

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is intended primarily for non-Indigenous people to gain a deeper understanding of the impacts of colonization in Canada, particularly around health, though anyone is welcome to participate.

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise program is a unique, experiential journey into history – developed in collaboration with Indigenous Elders, knowledge keepers and educators – that fosters truth, understanding, respect and reconciliation among Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples.

This Blanket Exercise includes a script specific to thehistory of colonization in the healthcare system and its impact on the health, well-being and culture of Indigenous communities. Anyone interested in deepening their understanding around colonization and its impacts, or trying to understand how to participate in the calls of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, should sign up for this workshop.

Experiential Workshops offer a way to see and experience aspects of the health and food system that are complex and not easily understood. One of the best ways to improve that understanding is to get out into the world and see new things through new eyes. This ‘seeing’ occurs as much through conversations with colleagues on the workshops as it does from the visits themselves.
