The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an interactive learning experience that teaches the Indigenous rights history we’re rarely taught. Developed in response to the 1996 Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples—which recommended education on Canadian-Indigenous history as one of the key steps to reconciliation, the Blanket Exercise covers over 500 years of history.

TEDxWinnipeg celebrated its seventh annual event this year with a big growth spurt and a new venue. We had some big ideas for the event, but applying some caution, we decided to pace ourselves and have more great new things for next year. Reviews are still coming in (If you were a guest, remember to fill our your survey form!), but by and large, it seems we had a great day. We’re still completing our internal reviews of this year’s event, but found a few stats we wanted to share.
This review was written by Hilary Friesen, a first-time TEDxWinnipeg volunteer.
Tuesday was my first TEDx Winnipeg experience. And I have Brent Toderash, who asked me to volunteer on the marketing committee, to thank for it.
TEDxWinnipeg 2017 was a packed day of interesting and inspiring speakers, meeting new people and live-tweeting the whole experience. As I look back, what stands out to me are the common threads and interconnections between the speakers – a testament, I’m sure, to the care and dedication the organizers put into selecting the program.
On Tuesday, at TEDxWinnipeg 2017, emcee Caity Curtis used quotes from the day’s TEDx Talks and guests’ post-its and notes at the game stations to craft a found poem that she read to the audience. Here is the poem.

Steve Langston is an entrepreneur and owner of Dirty T Shirt Productions, a digital marketing company with a focus on video. Dirty T Shirt’s documentaries have been seen across Canada on channels like CBC, RadX and MTS Stories From Home. We caught up with Steve to ask him a few questions before he takes the stage at TEDx Winnipeg on June 6.
This year we asked one of our speakers, Alyson Shane, to give us some insight into what it’s like to prepare and give a talk at TEDxWinnipeg. This is her third in a series of posts about just that. In less than a week, she’ll be on the TEDxWinnipeg stage! In case you missed them, you can still catch up on Alyson’s first and second posts in this series.
