Where are the Children? Healing the Legacy of the Residential Schools

Thursday, May 16th

Where are the Children? Healing the Legacy of the Residential Schools is a powerful travelling exhibition showing in the Borealis Gallery by the Legacy of Hope Foundation that explores the history and consequences of the Residential School System in Canada with the goal of contributing to the healing and understanding required for reconciliation. Through Survivor stories and archival photographs the exhibition covers over 125 years of history, transitioning through the stages of a child leaving home to arriving at school and participating in class activities. It provides a wide range of perspectives, from stories about the children who never returned home to contemporary Indigenous role models. This exhibition was curated by renowned Iroquois artist Jeff Thomas.

Please note that this exhibition contains subject matter that may be upsetting to some visitors. If you are in need of support, please call the National Survivors Crisis Line: 1.866.925.4419.
