Bunk #7 Capacity Building Project

Bunk #7 is a play written by the late Larry Guno based on his personnal experience of a student led riot at the Edmonton Residential School in the early 60s.  The goal of the Raven Collective has been to honour the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation : to share the truth of Larry’s expériences at IRS by bringing his story to life onstage ; to work towards reconciliation by creating opportunities for and developing local Indigenous talent in Northern BC.  

We were engaged as the Narrative Design Collective, a group of settlers designers, to design the show while mentoring someone from the local Indigenous community in our respective design disciplines.  With the completion of our production in Terrace, our next goal is to continue our mentee’s technical training while they take the show on a regional tour of BC.
