Register for a Truth and Reconciliation Event at the Peterborough Public Library 

The Peterborough Public Library invites the community to commemorate Indigenous History Month with them on Saturday, June 4 for Project of Heart: an Exploration of the Legacy of Residential Schools. This inter-generational Truth and Reconciliation activity is open to adults and families with children ages 10+ and will run from 10:30 am to 12:00 noon.

Register for Project of Heart 

In this interactive program, community members will learn about the history and legacy of residential schools from Project of Heart facilitator, Nancy Hamer Strahl, and Residential School Survivor, Mary Kelly.

Participants will commemorate the lives of children and families affected by Residential Schools by creating two small art tiles– one to keep and one to add to the community art project at the Library as starting points for continued discussion and learning.

You can learn more about Project of Heart, an initiative that calls all Canadians to action, through social justice endeavours, to change our present and future history collectively, at projectofheart.ca.
