Red Dress Day Installation

May 1 2023 @ 12:00 am - May 7 2023 @ 11:59 pm

This Red Dress Day Project in Ron Basford Park is a collaboration between Chepximiya Siyam/Chief Janice George and Granville Island. Chepximiya has used fabric in a two-dimensional design that evokes missing women, who should, in life, fill all three dimensions of the dress. The installation was done by visual display artist, Kamila Gougain.  Red Dress Day is a day of to honour and raise awareness and education about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and Two-Spirit People. The day of acknowledgment was started in 2010 by Indigenous artist Jaime Black to focus on the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women. We thank Chepximiya for her artistry in interpreting the Red Dress Project for Granville Island.
