Keynote

I Change You, You Change Me, and That Changes Everything: How People and Communities Are Like Plants and Gardens

John Janzen, Author & Presenter

John Janzen has lived and worked in Winnipeg’s North End where he was involved in community work and inner city development, mostly as a teacher.

He has also worked as the Creative Director for an international development agency, connecting Japanese donors with clean water and education projects in Cambodia and the southern Philippines. Using songs, videos, and storytelling, John aided diverse and distant communities to connect with each other.

Working as the Community Education Coordinator for Siloam Mission, John has spoken all over the province to thousands of students. He has taken his kids’ theatre show Blink’s Garden to Fringe festivals in Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Toronto. Blink’s Garden (a story of two friends and their journey to see past a huge dividing wall) has been told in hundreds of classrooms around Manitoba and has been made into a seven song CD, as well as an illustrated storybook.
