National Day for Truth and ReconciliationThursday Sep 30 | 12:00 PM - 5:00 pm
On September 30 the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria will be open from 12pm-5pm for a free Public Open House on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This is an important day of reflection and healing for all, it honours Indigenous residential school survivors, their families and communities.
“We hope that both staff and visitors will use the day to reflect on how the calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation commission report can be acted on in their own lives. The ideas and artworks presented in two of our current exhibitions, Emily Carr: Seeing and Being Seen and Holding Ground, offer many starting points for conversations around truth and reconciliation and the calls to action.” – AGGV Acting Director Janyce Ronson
