An archival photo exhibition portraying the history and legacy of Canada’s residential school system will open at the University of Manitoba this afternoon.
The public exhibit — “Where are the Children? Healing the Legacy of the Residential Schools” — is travelling across Canada to raise awareness of the legacy of residential schools.
Special guests for the opening include Phil Fontaine, former National Chief of AFN, and residential school survivors.
The exhibit will open at 2 p.m. and be on display at the U of M until March 16 in the Faculty of Law’s Robson Hall Common Room, 224 Dysart Road.
On Tuesday from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., the exhibit’s curator, Jeff Thomas, will host a free workshop on the photographs, the visual arts format, and archives as source material.
