RIIS Media Project is hosting a storytelling workshop with Evie Ruddy for anyone wishing to share their family story as part of the RIIS legacy. Evie will show you how to turn a few pictures and your memories and stories into a beautiful digital story. We will be hosting the finished videos on our website, unless otherwise specified. This workshop is free and you do not have to be a descendant of a Regina Indian Industrial School student, but you must email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
