Even though our galleries are still closed, our team is working hard to gather educational resources to complement our current exhibition “The Witness Blanket”.
Inspired by a woven blanket, the Witness Blanket is a large scale art installation, made out of hundreds of items reclaimed from Residential Schools, churches, government buildings and traditional and cultural structures including Friendship Centres, band offices, and treatment centres and universities, from across Canada. The Witness Blanket stands as a national monument to recognize the atrocities of the Indian Residential School era, honour the children, and symbolize ongoing reconciliation.
Join us on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, at 6PM for an exclusive virtual tour with master carver Carey Newman as he shares some of the stories that make up the Witness Blanket.
