The REDress Project uses red dresses to draw attention to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) in Canada. Using donated red dresses, Metis artist Jaime Black has created 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 5 to 9. Find out more here.
