The Project responds to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and aims to preserve, query, and reveal the complex personal, political, and public narratives around Canada’s residential school system, in general, and the Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School specifically, through the art of contemporary Indigenous artists and non-Indigenous collaborators and performers.
Over 30 individuals and groups comprise the Mush Hole Project, including the Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre, students, faculty and staff from the Faculty of Arts, and Woodland Cultural Centre.
