Saskatoon Residential School Survivors Circle & Tipi Painting Experience with Jerry Whitehead

On Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9, the public is invited to Remai Modern to observe a special experience by the Saskatoon Residential School Survivors Circle (SRSSC) and artist/Residential School Survivor Jerry Whitehead. 

Whitehead will be on site in the museum’s Cameco Learning Studio as he adorns the tipi with a new logo for the SRSSC. He worked with the Saskatoon Survivors Circle to create the design and will be painting it throughout the week at the museum before presenting the finished piece to the group.

At the same time, members of the Survivors Circle will be present to provide support and answer questions about their lived experiences as Residential School Survivors. Visitors can come and go throughout the day to listen and learn from the Survivors. The studio will be open from 10 AM-5 PM on both days, with Survivors expected to arrive around noon.

If you need support, the Indian Residential Schools Crisis Line is open 24/7 and can be reached at 1-866-925-4419.
