Each year, September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
The day honours the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.
This year, on September 30th at 7:30pm, the Over the Rainbow – Special Concert Marking National Day for Truth and Reconciliation will be held at the Michael J Fox Theatre (737 MacPherson Avenue, Burnaby, BC). This epic Grand Concert will have performances by Aboriginal artists and Canadian Chinese artists.
The Grand Concert is divided into three chapters:
The first chapter: “Carol of Native Land”
The second chapter: “National Grief”
The third chapter: “Over the Rainbow”
