“No Children Will Be Forgotten” is a weekend-long fundraiser, exhibit, and art show hosted by Indigenous artist D’Arcy Basil and CMHC-Granville Island, September 25 & 26, 2021. The art exhibit, with silent auctions on both days, will be held from 10am to 6pm in the new Hives for Humanity parklet, in front of co-host, i.e. Creative Art Works at 1244 Cartwright Street. Funds raised will be used to create and place a Kamloops Residential School Children’s Monument, carved from a 2,500lb piece of raw jade, as well as towards the creation of an Indigenous Artists Carving Program, teaching the traditional methods of carving wood, stone, bone, antler, and jade.
