The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) invites you to attend
“Each statistic tells a story” 
Aboriginal doll making workshop
open to the public
All workshop materials are provided.

Please register with Stephanie or call 613-722-3033, ext. 234 

Two workshops to choose from:
11:00-12 PM (lunch to follow) OR
5:30-6:30 PM (dinner to follow)

NWAC is also hosting a workshop on March 6 aimed specifically at secondary students.

This workshop was developed by artist Gloria Larocque, creator of the Aboriginal Angel Doll Project, a collection of one hundred faceless dolls highlighting society's neglect of Aboriginal women.

The dolls will be used to create a traveling art exhibit in memory of the more than 600 missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada. 

We remember that a beautiful Aboriginal woman is represented by every number shared, that each statistic tells a story.
