Evoking presence through their absence is the intention of The REDress Project which is an aesthetic response to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women started in Winnipeg, Manitoba by Métis artist Jaime Black.

Last night, February 12th, at our support group at Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, women reflected on impact of gender violence on themselves and the community and created these Red Dresses.  These artistic designs are also made in preparation for February 14th Women’s Memorial March happening tomorrow on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories.
