Film screening of Witness Blanket with Artist Carey Newman

In Indigenous


Witness Blanket

Canadian Museum for Human Rights


The Witness Blanket is a large‐scale art installation made from hundreds of items reclaimed from survivors and their families, residential schools, churches, government buildings, and traditional and cultural structures across Canada. 

The process of gathering these objects and their stories took artist Carey Newman and his team from coast to coast to coast. The documentary film Picking Up the Pieces: The Making of the Witness Blanket shares that journey. Join us for a film screening of Picking Up the Pieces and Childhood Denied, followed by a Q&A session with Director Carey Newman.


This event project is part of the cultural program of Canada’s Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2021 and is supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Deutsches Filminstitut, and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in partnership with Carey Newman and Media One.
