ENGAGE: Intentionally Salon

Published in Salons

Explore a different way of building community through deep, intentional dialogue. In the process, discover how we can help shape our sense of purpose either individually, or collectively as a city.

Our three speakers will spark your imagination with their talks, sharing both perspectives and tools that you can use to engage other participants in a set of deep conversations about what YOU think we need to change about our dialogue on community. Immerse yourself in the interactions with other equally curious Calgarians, and help us generate a new and far-reaching conversation about how we define our purpose.

This event features live speakers. Please visit our Speakers page to learn more about them!

Thank you for your interest, but this event is SOLD OUT. Please consider joining us for a future event!

Garret C. Smith

Published in ENGAGE: Intentionally Salon (2019)

Exploring a traditional, healing form of dialogue about how we can better share the surrounding lands and understand the reality of First Nations trauma within our current society. Garret utilizes his experience growing up in Treaty 7 territory, the lessons he learned from the Elders, his time spent in prison, the issue of Universities, and the life-changing path he found in acting that lead him to help himself become a better father and do what he can to help his people heal. Specifically challenging the 'male-ego' to take a deep look at oneself and reflect on how we got where we are today, and how we can improve where we end up tomorrow.

Garret C. Smith is a proud member of the Piikani and Kainai Tribes of the Blackfoot Nation in Southern Alberta. A 2013 graduate of the Centre For Indigenous Theatre located in Toronto, Ontario; the former Interim Artistic Director for Making Treaty 7, and is the Founder of the "Mohkinstsis Healing Camp" previously located in downtown Calgary, Alberta.

Garret is an activist, actor, writer and youth support advocate.

Nicole Hartley Bradford

Published in ENGAGE: Intentionally Salon (2019)

Nicole Hartley Bradford has a crazy dream of a world full of re-wilded humans living on a planet we have saved from ruin (she hopes).

She sees this happening by way of our developing radically intimate relationships with ourselves, each other, and the natural world. In her dream, we have come to live again within the intimate connections and social support structure of the village, even within a much larger community or city structure.

In order to help her dream come true, Nicole shares it with others, and asks to hear about their wildest dreams. With those who draw near, she shares tools she and her friends have gathered for natural healing, learning, growing and building connections between people through intentional collaboration on projects like "buddy bags". She trusts that we will save the world. She also realizes we might not — and, if we don’t, she hopes her four children will be proud of her efforts.
