The Legacy of Hope Foundation (LHF) is a national Indigenous charitable organization with the mandate to educate and create awareness and understanding about the Residential School System. The LHF supports the ongoing healing process of Residential School Survivors and their families and seeks their input on projects that honour them.
This two-part exhibition will include:
Youth on Reconciliation – Imagine A Canada
Remembering, Honouring, and The Way Forward: 10 Years After the Indian Residential School Apology
“Imagine a Canada” is an annual national art and essay competition sponsored by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation in collaboration with Rideau Hall. It explores the concept of Reconciliation through artistic expression and what that means to youth in Canada by asking young people to share their thoughts on what the future of Canada can look like through the lens of hope, respect, and Reconciliation.
“Remembering, Honouring, and the Way Forward: 10 Years After the Residential School Apology.” The exhibition was developed to be interactive and features a hand-crafted basket that holds messages of peace, hope, and Reconciliation from Canadians across Canada and from people worldwide.
