"Project of Heart" is a hands‐on, collaborative journey that invites all people to connect with the true history of Indigenous people in Canada.

Open to everyone and suitable for all ages, the event involves decorating a wooden tile in remembrance of a child who died at a residential school. Creating your tile symbolizes your commitment to truth and reconciliation as together, we strive to change our present and our future.

In the process, you will move from sorrow to strength as you come to understand Indigenous resistance and resurgence.

A smudging ceremony will take place at 10 minutes to each hour so that participants can smudge their tiles before taking them home.
