touring information

The Witness Blanket is currently undergoing conservation at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) in Winnipeg, after touring Canada extensively over the past few years.

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the CMHR to create a new, true-to-scale reproduction of The Witness Blanket, available to host venues beginning May 2019. The CMHR has augmented the exhibiton with interpretive panels, an in-gallery film, and a digital interactive. This new version of the exhibition will begin touring in May 2019. For any questions about the new Witness Blanket Tour, please email
