The REDress Project @ YorkU 2018

First created by Winnipeg-based Métis artist, Jaime Black in 2010, The REDress Project uses red dresses to draw attention to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) in Canada. The project has a national scope and brings focus to the more than 1000 unresolved cases of missing and murdered women, girls and two-spirited persons. The goal of The REDress Project is to create an open discussion about the gendered and racialized nature of oppression of Indigenous women since colonization. Using donated red dresses, Black creates an installation art project that serves as a visual reminder of the missing and murdered women, girls and two-spirited persons.

The REDress Project is part of a week of special events running from March 5th to 8th, 2018.
