The ‘virtual quilt’  is designed to give voice and expression to Inuit women’s unique experiences and lasting impacts of Residential Schools as a national Residential Schools commemoration initiative. This project was recommended by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and was funded by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada. The project, entitled TRC – Virtual Quilt was a project for communities that are interested in producing an art piece that reflects the Inuit experience of Residential Schools. The final outcomes of this project are intended to document and preserve the legacy of these experiences and to help begin a dialogue of reconciliation and healing with all Canadians.
