Opening ceremony for Walking With Our Sisters @ CUAG

Friday, 25 September 2015, 1:00 p.m.

Carleton University Art Gallery, Gallery 101 and the Walking With Our Sisters Ottawa Committee are honoured to invite you to the opening ceremony for Walking With Our Sisters.

Over the last thirty years, more than 1180 Indigenous women, girls and Two-Spirits have been reported missing or murdered in Canada. Many have vanished without a trace, and their cases have often been inadequately investigated, neglected or ignored.

Walking With Our Sisters is a commemorative art installation that honours and respects the lives of these women, girls and Two-Spirits. They are sisters, mothers, aunties, daughters, cousins, grandmothers, wives and partners. They are not forgotten.

Walking With Our Sisters is a collective, collaborative, community-based project that creates a ceremonial public space so that people can come together to honour, to mourn, to remember, and to raise awareness.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome!

La Galerie d’art de l’Université Carleton, la Galerie 101 et le Comité d’Ottawa pour Marchons avec nos sœurs ont l’honneur de vous inviter à la cérémonie d’ouverture de Marchons avec nos sœurs.

Depuis les trente dernières années, plus de 1 180 femmes, jeunes filles et bispirituelles autochtones ont été portées disparues ou assassinées au Canada. Beaucoup se sont simplement volatilisés sans traces et des enquêtes de leurs cas ont souvent été inadéquates, négligées, ou laissées pour compte.

Marchons avec nos sœurs est une installation commémorative qui veut rendre honneur et respect à la vie de ces femmes, jeunes filles et bispirituelles. Elles sont des sœurs, des mères, des tantes, des filles, des cousines, des grand-mères, des épouses et des conjointes. Nous ne les oublions pas.

Marchons avec nos sœurs est un projet collectif, collaboratif et communautaire qui crée un espace public de cérémonie où l’on peut se rassembler pour honorer et pleurer les disparues, pour se remémorer et pour faire de la sensibilisation.

L’entrée est sans frais ; bienvenue à tous et à toutes!
