“Art+Reconciliation,” is a MOOC that addresses how artistic practices can engage in questions of reconciliation, most particularly in the Canadian context of residential schools and the associated and ongoing Truth and Reconciliation Commission. As part of our process we will examine the history of the residential school system in Canada, discuss strategies of creating and increasing an awareness of Indigenous practices and histories from Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal perspectives, engage in a critical inquiry of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools, and all the while think through how artistic media can be a driving force in this articulation.
