  • Special Event

Join us for an activity and open conversation about all aspects of residential schools; bring your stories, ready ears, and ready hands. In the spirit of the story told by spokesperson and former student, Phyllis (Jack) Webstad, of her first day when her shiny new orange shirt, a gift from her grandmother, was taken from her as a six-year-old girl, we invite you to make your own orange shirt with us, stencils, and paint to bring home.The Legacy of Orange Shirt Day commemorates the residential school experience, calling us to witness and honour the healing journeys of the survivors and their families, remember those who didn’t make it, and commit to active, ongoing decolonization. Every Child Matters, even if they are now an adult.

Please note that one ticket to this event covers enough materials to make one orange shirt. One child and their accompanying adult/s can be covered by one ticket to make one orange shirt together.

Tickets: $85 for General, $70 for Seniors (65+), MOV Members, Students (with ID), $50 for Indigenous Peoples
