2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us to see the documentary Picking Up the Pieces: The Making of the Witness Blanket created by artist Carey Newman. Debrief with some coffee and cookies in our Stewart Discovery Studio afterwards. Free to attend. 

This film follows the journey of making The Witness Blanket - a National monument that commemorates the experience of Residential School survivors across Canada. Narrated by the artist, this film weaves together those stories with his personal journey, examining how art can open our hearts to the pain of truth and the beauty of resiliency.
