The SLCC is honored to host this traveling exhibit that showcases a groundbreaking archival photo exhibition of the residential schools that many of our Aboriginal people were forced to attend and the legacy of those schools on people’s lives today.
TOUR EXPERIENCE OVERVIEW:
Due to the small space and sensitive nature of this exhibit, we are presenting the Where are the Children Exhibit as a self-guided add on tour option.
If you are interested in having a more in depth overview of this exhibit as part of your group tour please be sure to make note of this at the time of booking as we will need to schedule staff accordingly. The format of this additional tour piece begins with an introduction and overview of the exhibit, then guests will be invited to explore the Gallery on their own, and lastly our cultural ambassador will set aside time for a Q&A period.
With this additional tour portion, please allow for about 1.5-2 hours total at the Centre.
To make the most of your experience, we recommend breaking for lunch between the two portions of the tour.
