Artscape’s Statement on the Discovery of 215 Bodies at Kamloops Residential School

We are deeply disturbed by the news of the terrible discovery of the remains of 215 Indigenous children at the site of a former residential school in British Columbia. It is a reminder of the atrocities to Indigenous children and people in Canada. It is also a reminder that as Canadians we should all align to actions of support and allyship with Truth and Reconciliation. We stand with our Indigenous artist community and encourage you to learn more.
