August 22, 2018

The Helen Betty Osborne building in Winnipeg will soon be wrapped in a Star-Blanket inspired mural, according to CTV News. The building is currently home to the Wii Chiiwaakanak Learning Centre, the University of Winnipeg’s ACCESS education program, and community-learning programs.The Star-Blanket represents gifts of the highest honour in First Nations culture, and the Star Blanket Project currently has multiple sites around the city. “The Helen Betty Osborne building is a place where the university and our neighbors come together to share, learn, and build brighter futures for young people in the community through impactful programs that honour Indigenous culture,” said UWinnipeg President Annette Trimbee. “Just as a Star Blanket honours those who are wrapped inside, this mural will honour and empower the many community members and learners who pass through these doors.” CTV News
