Virtual Kairos Blanket Exercise (vKBE)
Jan 18, 2022 02:00 PM
to 05:00 PM
Registration Deadline: Jan 14, 2022 04:30 PM
The Blanket Exercise is an interactive learning experience that teaches the Indigenous rights history that we were rarely taught. In support of the University of Toronto's commitment to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's recommendation for education on Canadian-Indigenous History as one of the steps to reconciliation, the Blanket Exercise covers 500 years of history in a participatory workshop.
The vKBE is a live-streamed, ZOOM based, interactive presentation that is based on the KAIROS Blanket Exercise and built around a PowerPoint presentation with embedded images and videos. It is delivered by an Indigenous-led team of 3 facilitators.
