Circles of Trust continue work of Citizen Project

Circles of TrustThe Citizens Project in Quebec with its three main forums marked the end of its first phase in March, 2013 but the seeds that this programme sowed continue to grow and blossom as Permanent Circles of Trust in Victoriaville, Montreal and Quebec City.

These circles help create opportunities for ongoing listening and dialogue sessions, as a way of trustbuilding and creating harmony among First Nations, French and English Canadians and more recent immigrants.

The Voice of Silence, the one-hour theatrical presentation produced by Espace Art Nature for the Forums, is touring First Nations communities, schools and other institutions in Quebec province until March 2014. At the heart of the presentation are the testimonies of survivors of Indian Residential Schools
