KAIROS Blanket Workshop

During the Journées de la culture, take part in the KAIROS Blanket Workshop an engaging and participatory activity that fosters knowledge and understanding of our shared Indigenous and non-Indigenous history in Canada.

By stepping onto blankets representing the land, participants put themselves in the role of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people to try to understand aspects of history and feel the emotional, cultural and territorial impacts.

The workshop educates while developing empathy by engaging people emotionally and intellectually. Touching the heart and mind simultaneously, it contributes to building a reconciliation movement across the country based on education.

The workshop is recommended for people aged 14 and up.
Facilitated in English
and in French by Olivia Ikey and Nancy Saunders, it will be followed by a period of discussion during which participants share their thoughts.
