The REDress Project is a public art installation that aims to raise awareness surrounding the murder and disappearance of over 500 Aboriginal women across Canada.

The aim of the project is to collect, by community donation, 500 RED dresses to later install and display in public spaces. Along with the installation of 300+ dresses, there will be tours of the installation, educational materials, a movie screening, as well as a panel of speakers. This event takes place March 7 – 12.
