Stronger Together header

Stronger Together-Blanket Exercise-South Shore Region

Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia

Monday, 11 March 2019 from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM (ADT)

Lunenburg Library, 97 Kaulbach Street, Lunenburg, NS

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

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise™ is a workshop that explores the nation-to-nation relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. Blankets arranged on the floor represent land and participants are invited to step into the roles of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. The workshop helps people to understand how the colonization of this land impacts those who were here long before settlers arrived. It engages people's minds and hearts in understanding why the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples is often broken and how we can take action together.

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise™ will be led by Debbie Eisan, Community Planner and Resident Elder with the Mi'kmaw Native Friendship Centre in Halifax, NS.

Ticket Options:

  • Ticket $35+HST
  • Sponsorship/Pay It Forward A: $35+HST (If you would like to sponsor another potential registrant who may not be able to register due to financial constraints you may do so with this option.)
  • Sponsorship-Pay It Forward B: $Amount of your choosing (Donation)

Registration:

https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/stronger-together-blanket-exercise-south-shore-region-tickets-55928521714#

Stronger Together will be held at the Lunenburg Academy, 97 Kaulbach Street, Lunenburg, NS from 10am-Noon. Rule of thumb for cancellations will be based on school closures.  If schools in Lunenburg are closed due to inclement weather, we will cancel the Stronger Together event.

"Ramp It Up!" for SSWC

Ramp it Up for SSWC 2019

“Ramp It Up!” for Second Story Women’s Centre

“Ramp It Up!” for Second Story Women’s Centre Lunenburg School of the Arts is thrilled to announce the return of our biennial ‘Ramp It Up’ for Second Story Women’s Centre “SSWC” fundraising event and live auction, Thursday, May 9, 2019, 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $35.00 and includes a hand made bowl, soup and bread. 

This event is in keeping with North America’s ‘empty bowl’ movement where craft folk make bowls and soup makers make soup. This is a lively fun event for a very good cause.  “The LSA Bowling Team has not been on strike but bowling at a very high average!” said bowling team captain, Douglas Bamford.

Clay for the bowls has been donated by Pottery Supply House of Oakville, Ontario; the soup by Martin and Sylvie from Lunenburg’s Salt Shaker Deli and local artists have been donating their skills to make and decorate the bowls of various shapes and sizes.

“All monies raised go directly to Second Story Women’s Centre”, said LSA Volunteer Chair, Wilfred Moore. At our 2017 “Ramp It Up” we were able to raise $4500, and another $525 for the bowls we sold after the event, for the Women’s Centre.

Tickets available at Second Story Women's Centre, 18 Dufferin St. and Lunenburg Bound Books, 139 Montague St. in Lunenburg.
