Shades of our Sisters
Opening Reception Date: Friday February 15th 2019, 6:00pm – 9:00pm (St. James Cathedral, 106 King St E.)
Created by the Cywink and Carpenter families in 2016, Shades of Our Sisters has grown to include the stories of many brave families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. The exhibit is a space to come together as a community and actively become a part of supporting MMIWGT2S families in their healing journey and understanding the importance of ending all forms of violence.
In solidarity with the February 14th Strawberry ceremonies which take place across the country, we invite community to join us and St. James Cathedral for the opening of the exhibit. This will be an evening of honouring victims of violence through feast, candlelight vigil and art. The exhibit will be open to the public until Friday, March 1.
Loved ones of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Trans and Two-Spirit People are welcome to bring photos of their loved ones to honour their memory within the exhibit.
