touring information

Due to the wear sustained over 4 years of traveling the country, we have made the difficult decision to end the Witness Blanket Tour. We are currently working on options for a replacement exhibit to travel in it’s place and will update future tour stops when more information is available. For any questions, please contact us by email or phone 1-250-881-0528.
