On August 18, 2013, close to 300 people joined together at the Art Gallery of Ontario for the community art performance Say Their Names, Remember. During this four-hour event, participants read aloud the names of the 5,200 school children who perished in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. Say Their Names, Remember was directed by Toronto artist Gein Wong, artistic director of Eventual Ashes.
