KAIROS Blanket Exercise

Date: Friday, November 16, 2018 (P.A. Day)
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: Main Activity Hall, MultiFaith Centre, 569 Spadina Ave.

Learn about Indigenous colonization as it really happened in this interactive, family-friendly KAIROS-inspired blanket exercise led by facilitator Dawn Maracle. Participants – including children 5 years and older – will take part in a time-travelling, role-playing exercise that captures the experiences of Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island, known to most today as “Canada.” Over the span of 2 hours, Dawn will walk participants through the various stages of pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance.

Wear your fun/mismatched socks as you will be taking shoes off for the exercise!

All U of T students, staff and faculty and their partners and children are welcome.

This event is held in conjunction with U of T’s Student Life Access and Inclusion Peer Programs.
