REDress Project
Posted Monday, November 28, 2011 10:24 AM
Sponsored by the gender and environment workshop in the Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth and Resources, the REDress project is a visual art installation project. As an aesthetic response to the over 700 missing or murdered Aboriginal women in Canada, the installation seeks to draw attention to the gendered and racialized nature of violent crimes against Aboriginal women and to evoke and provoke action. An all-day workshop, Gender and Environment: Action Agenda in Manitoba, will be held on November 28. The talks will determine an action agenda to bring women’s issues to 2012 United Nations Environment Programme meeting in Brazil. The agenda includes the REDress Project artist talk with Jaime Black in the afternoon.
