The workshop (not open to the public) was planned by Grade 12 student Sidney Shacter with support from Evan Hardy Collegiate staff and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner. With the guidance of Elder Marjorie Beaucage and resource people, workshop participants will use the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action as a focus for creating their films.

The workshop and public presentation of the films are co-sponsored with the Office of the Treaty Commissioner and the National Film Board, and are part of the lead-up to a Reconciliation Walk on National Aboriginal Day.
