Project of Heart, Winter 2023

The National Truth and Reconciliation Commission has identified 94 calls to action to redress the legacy of residential schools in Canada. Project of Heart answers this call and addresses the history of residential schools while providing a safe space and programmatic structure to engage, to take positive action, and to collectively identify ways to build towards a better future. In fact, Project of Heart has been selected as a National Commemoration Project by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

Project of Heart was founded by University of Regina graduate student, Sylvia Smith. Since its inception, Project of Heart has been offered across all provinces and territories across Canada. In 2011, Sylvia Smith received the Governor General’s award for Project of Heart.

Project of Heart is an inquiry based, hands-on, collaborative, intergenerational, artistic journey that examines the history and legacy of the residential school system forced upon Indigenous people in Canada. Project of Heart seeks to uncover the truth about that history and acknowledge the extent of loss to former students, their families, and communities. With the use of artistry and Indigenous ceremony, participants in Project of Heart learn about and commemorate the lives of the thousands of Indigenous children who died as a result of the residential school experience. It calls the participants to action through social justice endeavors, to recognize our current and historic colonialist practices and to build right relationships, based upon truth and reconciliation, amongst all people with the intention to transform Canada from a colonized land to one built upon mutual respect and full autonomy for all.


Project of Heart will be offered weekly from January 18th until April 6th 2023, The class will be offered on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Luther College, University of Regina Campus. The class will be face-to-face, as long as it remains safe to do so. Luther College at the University of Regina is a mask friendly space.
