Speakers: Various

Description:

WHAT IS CANADA’S ROLE IN A WORLD WHERE POVERTY AND HOPELESSNESS THRIVE?

With this provocative question, BRIDGESTHATUNITE, a bilingual traveling exhibition, invites visitors to consider Canada’s global leadership role through the lens of a remarkable 25-year partnership with the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN). Built on a set of common values, such as pluralism, democracy and peace, this unique partnership is replacing walls that divide the developed and developing worlds with bridges that unite us.

Through the creative interplay of audio, video, text panels, bold graphics and interactive components, BRIDGESTHATUNITE challenges visitors to confront typical assumptions about what international development is and what it can achieve -- and injects evidence about Canada’s own experience into the public debate.

Accompanying the exhibition is a robust programming component, including:
–Lectures and panel discussions
–School programs and activities for youth
–Cultural events, including musical performances and film screenings
Hours:
October 4th – October 31st: 9:30AM-5:30PM (Sunday – Saturday)
November 1st – November 4th: 9:30AM-5:00PM (Sunday – Saturday)

ADMISSION IS FREE
