There is Truth Here: Creativity and Resilience in Children’s Art from Indian Residential and Day Schools is the title of an exhibition curated by Andrea Walsh. It focuses on rare surviving artworks created by children who attended the Inkameep Day School (Okanagan), St Michael’s Indian Residential School (Alert Bay); the Alberni Indian Residential School (Vancouver Island) and Mackay Indian Residential School (Manitoba). The focus of the exhibition is on the experiences of the survivors of the schools as depicted through art they made during their time there. Freedom of expression was very rare to the residential school experience and therefore is an important documentation of the lives of survivors.
