Title: In the greenhouse: TRC Report Reading Group/ Sewing Circle
Description: the greenhouse: a feminist artlab for making and thinking on the 5th
floor of the UWinnipeg library, is pleased to be hosting Helene
Vosters in the lab from March 6 through to March 17.

TRC Report: Reading Group/ Sewing Circle
Weds, March 8, 2-4pm
Tues, March 14, 2-4pm

"Reconciliation: A Call to Action" engages a labour
aesthetic that brings together two necessarily care-filled and
time-demanding tasks—embroidery and critical reflection. A work in
progress, Reconciliation’s unfinished status is critical to its
meaning. It is a reminder that reconciliation, as part of a praxis of
redress, requires ongoing, sustained labour.

All are welcome to come participate in reconciliation’s labours of
critical reflection and action. Together we will read aloud from TRC’s
388-page summary report, embroider sections of the report’s 94 Calls
to Action onto Canadian flags, and share reflections.

Experience not necessary. All welcome.

HELENE VOSTERS is an artist, activist, and scholar who is currently a
SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow (University of Manitoba). Her work explores
issues of state violence, social memory, and the role of performance
and aesthetic practices in mobilizing resistance.
