Come be among the first to explore Peace – The Exhibition at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21! Presented from May 16 to October 19, 2014, the public opening reception will be held Thursday, May 22 at 5:30 p.m. All are welcome! The travelling exhibition, developed by the Canadian War Museum and adapted by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, vividly illustrates the rich diversity of Canadians’ choices and actions for peace, and how these actions have helped shape Canada’s history. Come experience peace through a diversity of viewpoints: peace activists protesting to prevent war, soldiers fighting to end war and immigrants coming to Canada to escape war. Don’t miss the rare iconic peace objects featured in the exhibition including an American immigrant’s draft card from the Vietnam War and an original record of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Give Peace a Chance” recorded in Montreal.
