REDress Project Comes to Charles Hoey Park in Duncan
The REDress Project started in 2010 and red dresses will be hanging from trees in Charles Hoey Park Saturday.
Metis artist, Jamie Black started this project as a representation of all the Indigenous women and girls who have been lost as a result of violent crime.
Program Coordinator with Warmland Women’s, Kendra Thomas says this demonstration attracts people and piques their interest in what’s going on.
Thomas says this is a way to promote meaningful conversation.
The event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and Cowichan Tribes is hosting a walk for missing and murdered men, women, and children that goes right passed Charles Hoey Park.
