Together: An exhibition on global development has travelled to six provinces and reached over 10,000 people since it launched in Ottawa in April! This fall, the bilingual and interactive exhibition is heading to southern Ontario.
Find out how Together: An Exhibition on Global Development is inspiring conversations on global development in communities across the country:
CBC Ottawa reporter Sandra Abma visited the Together exhibit at Carleton University and talked to students on the role they can play as agents of positive change.
“A travelling exhibition on global development pays a visit to Antigonish this weekend. It’s called the Together Truck, which offers one thousand square feet of space, which includes interactive displays, photography, film and audio. It’s a project of Aga Khan Foundation Canada, a non-profit international development agency working in Asia and Africa.
Spokesperson Stephanie Larocque says the Together Truck began its two year tour across the country in April.”
“While there is always plenty to see and do at the Evolve Festival, held July 9 to 12 in Black Avon, Antigonish County, one of the more interesting additions this year wasn’t quite on the festival grounds, but just outside.
The Together truck/exhibit made the Evolve festival a location to spend time at after spending a few days in the Antigonish Mall parking lot.
Stéphanie Larocque is the tour manager for Together and she noted it was put together by the Aga Khan Foundation Canada with additional support from the Government of Canada (Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade, and Development). ‘To help people learn more about global development and also, hopefully, we’ll be able to inspire people to take action and get involved,’ Larocque said.”
The Together exhibit made a three-day stop at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, celebrating and showcasing Canada’s contributions to global development, and inspire even more Canadians to take action and get involved.
