About the project Edit

Caring Across Boundaries is an exhibition engaging First Nations and all peoples of Canada in reconciliation to promote the well-being of children and youth. In this exhibition, three First Nations communities share their daily experiences while inviting every Canadian to make a positive difference for First Nations children and their families.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The First Nations children and families shown in this exhibition are sharing their daily experiences in ways that invite caring Canadians to make a real and positive difference for First Nations children and their families. Their lived experiences are typical of other First Nations peoples in Canada and so is their hope that we can ensure all children and youth in Canada can grow up healthy, happy and proud of who they are. Reconciliation opens the doors for all Canadians to have a new relationship with First Nations based on mutual respect and friendship.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Caring Across Boundaries brings to life the challenges and dreams of First Nations communities with the goal of promoting understanding and contributing to the process of reconciliation between Aboriginal Peoples and Canadians. Reconciliation happens in the small moments when people with open hearts and minds come together. It is based on a better understanding of our history and is built on trust, respect, and a genuine commitment to our collective well-being and prosperity.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit
