Reconciling Edmonton Exhibit at the Coutts Library

No comments :

University of Alberta students and staff now have the chance to experience the Reconciliation Edmonton project on campus until December 23rd.

The project features seven historic photographs from the City of Edmonton Archives, the Provincial Archives of Alberta, the City of Edmonton and the Aboriginal Multi-Media Society. The photos have been incorporated with artwork and poetry demonstrating reconciliation building in the region from the time of the signing of Treaty 6, which was 140 years ago.

RISE - Reconciliation in Solidarity Edmonton co-founder Miranda Jimmy collaborated with Danielle Metcalf-Chenail, former historian Laureate for the City of Edmonton, Jennie Vegt, former Artist in Residence of the City of Edmonton and  Anna Marie Sewell, former Poet Laureate in Residence for the City of Edmonton. Reconciliation Edmonton is a project funded by Edmonton Heritage Council.

Currently on display at the H.T. Coutts Education and Physical Education Library, Reconciling Edmonton encourages viewers to share their own reflections on reconciliation in the guestbook or on social media by using the hashtag #ReconcilingYEG.
