CBC Halifax host Amy Smith visited the Together exhibit for Canada Day and talked to its curator, Christine McGuire, on the important role Canadians are playing to alleviate global poverty.
Find out how Together: An Exhibition on Global Development is inspiring conversations on global development in communities across the country:
“Yesterday this truck drove down Marginal Road towards the container port. But unlike most of the trucks driving that route, which will unload their container cargo onto boats or trains for shipping around the world, this one is delivering the world to Halifax. Its cargo is a (literally) touring exhibition called ‘Together: An exhibition on global development.’
Organized by Aga Khan Foundation Canada, ‘Together’ focuses on ‘Canadian contributions to positive change around the world’ with photos, videos, bilingual placards, an interactive map and more museum-grade goodness than you'd imagine can be installed in a truck.”
This Canada Day, Together: An exhibition on global development rolled into Halifax, stopping at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 for three days, showcasing and celebrating how Canadians are driving global change.
The Together exhibition was featured at the World Partnership Walk in Victoria Park, Canada's largest annual event raising money and awareness to end global poverty. CTV London dropped by to take in the festivities.
