Albert Schultz, Artistic Director of Toronto’s celebrated Soulpepper Theatre Company, visited the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre at Algoma University to meet one of its founders, Shirley Horn, Chancellor of Algoma University. Struck by Horn’s remarkable journey from residential school to Chancellor, he asked Shirley to collaborate on a work of art to tell her story, and that of her community, to Canadians. But how do we create art from such stories? Is art a necessary response? In this season two installment, an exclusive Algoma Fall Festival Conversation, Albert and Shirley will discuss truth, art, and reconciliation.
