A special event is taking place at St. John’s United Church, 400 Prescott St. Kemptville, on March 11, between 11 am and 4 pm. The Native Women’s Association of Canada has been compiling what they call the Faceless Doll Project as a commemorative art project in honour and in memory of the hundreds of missing and murdered Aboriginal women of Canada. The project was launched in 2012 and Canadians of all kinds, men, women, boys, girls, regardless of ethnicity, indigenous and non-indigenous, are invited to get together and hear the story of the Faceless Dolls. They then get to create their own, individual doll which reminds us that each doll represents a real person, faceless, but a mother, wife, sister, daughter who has been lost to us.
Everyone is invited to join in spending an afternoon creating their own Faceless Doll Project, an initiative of the Native Women’s Association of Canada. Each doll represents a “known case” of a missing or murdered Aboriginal woman or girl from the NWAC database. Come and learn more about this commemorative art project. Guest speakers will be in attendance.
A light lunch will be offered. Fully accessible, we look forward to spending time with everyone. Please call Barbara at 613-258-4526 or email [email protected] for more information and to confirm your participation.
