Heart garden to honour victims of colonial violence

Members of the Brock community are invited to participate in creating a commemorative display to honour those who suffered in residential schools or through other forms of colonial violence.

Students, faculty and staff are invited to create heart-shaped messages that will be displayed in the heart garden in front of the Rankin Family Pavilion as part of the University’s observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation Saturday, Sept. 30. A number of commemorative activities will also take place Friday, Sept. 29. More details will be released in the coming days.

Interested participants can create their messages at the Hadiyaˀdagénhahs First Nations, Métis and Inuit Student Centre (TH 145) any time between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. until Friday, Sept. 15.

No registration is required.
