Opening the Doors to Dialogue
Samuel Thomas (Niagara Falls, ON)
Opening the Doors to Dialogue is a collaborative project involving artists, organizations, Elders, and community members both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal made up of residential school survivors, their descendants, and the general public. Through a series of beadwork sessions, the artist and groups will bead 4-6 doors salvaged from residential schools across Canada. These sessions will provide a forum for open dialogue while sharing culture through the creation of a monumental work of art.
