Call for participants for Terrance Houle project

An ongoing video project Terrance has been working is “All for You”, a feature length video work chronicling residential school attendees' favorite place and/or space.  While Terrance is here, he would really like to work with residential school attendees in the creation of short (about a minute) video portraits chronicling their favorite place and/or space.  If you or someone you know may be interested in participating, please contact Sakewewak’s office through email at sakewewak.programs@sasktel.net or through telephone at 780-9485.
