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.

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.

ENGAGE: 2019 is going to be a year of profound ideas...

Whether it's one of our regular monthly community salons at a local branch of the Calgrary Public Library, one of our larger engagement salons with live speakers and deep conversations, or even a campfire adventure outdoors, we're ready to talk with you about the ideas that matter for our city. We'll be exploring some fun and unique ways to share ideas with our participants, and have meaningful conversations about what we can do to help move some of them forward.

And, we'll also be featuring our main annual event again in November -- it's time to celebrate our tenth year of programming with a special type of event that goes even deeper than the more than one dozen live events we've held in the last decade.

Stay tuned to our 8 Seconds news bulletin, our social media channels, or this website for more updates as we start releasing our event plans for 2019.

Be part of the magic: ENGAGE with ideas!
