Red Dress Project

The exhibit is a collaboration between several community groups, including the Revelstoke Aboriginal Friendship Society, Arts Revelstoke, School District No. 19 and the B.C. Interior Forestry Museum, other organizations, and many volunteers.

The REDress Project by Jaime Black is a public art installation that was created in response to the missing and murdered Indigenous women (MMIW) epidemic in Canada and the United States. The on-going project began in 2010 and commemorates missing and murdered indigenous women from the First Nations, Inuit, Métis, and Native American communities by hanging empty red dresses in a range of environments. The project has also inspired other artists to use red to draw attention to the issue of MMIW, and prompted the creation of Red Dress Day.
