Project of Heart 2020 offered through Luther College

Luther College at the University of Regina will be hosting its fifth
iteration of Project of Heart starting Wednesday, January 22, 2020.
Created by University of Regina graduate Sylvia Smith, this nine-week program is inclusive to all community members and open to all ages. Project of Heart facilitates a safe space for reciprocal learning about the residential school system in Canada. The children and families who were and still are affected by this piece of our colonial history are commemorated using an artistic approach. This program aligns with the goals of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

This year, the program will feature publications from the Regina Indian Industrial School Commemoration Association including Douglas Stewart’s recent publication, The Regina Indian Industrial School (1891-1910): Historical Overview and Chronological Narrative, and a film by Janine Windolph and Trudy Stewart entitled RIIS from Amnesia.

This is an excellent project for professors who are looking for
community-engaged opportunities for their students.
