Exhibit manager Christine McGuire takes viewers on a virtual tour of some of Together’s exhibit pieces for Global News Winnipeg. Each piece contributes to the exhibit’s message that positive change is possible for those in developing nations with the right kind of contributions from globally-minded citizens who care.
Robyn Tocker from The Star in Melville Saskatchewan visited the Together exhibit and explored how there is no one solution to global poverty. There are many. “[T]he exhibit…is divided in a way that exposes the problem in certain countries around the world…like a lack of electricity or education or a need for health care advisors”, explained Tour Manager Francois Grenier, “the section also provides a solution…[visitors] can learn more about global development and can make the world a better place.”
During its stay in Winnipeg the Together exhibit partnered with the Canadian Museum of Human Rights. Here is a local radio interview with Christine McGuire speaking on behalf of AKFC: “what happens in one part of the world really affects us in the other and it’s a ripple effect…I think that it’s really important that people walk through [the exhibit] because they can really see that they can be positive agents in this world to make effective changes both locally and globally.”
