Featuring artwork and poems by winners of the first Imagine a Canada competition (March 2016), this exhibition explores the concept of Reconciliation through artistic expression and what that means to youth in Canada.
‘Imagine a Canada’ is an annual national art and essay competition sponsored by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation in collaboration with Rideau Hall. It asks young people to share their thoughts on what the future of Canada can look like through the lens of hope, respect, and Reconciliation.
Additional components, programming elements and local resources have been included to ensure a more localized and educational experience. 21 Things About the Indian Act, UNDRIP (United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples), wellness and educational resources as well as weekly informal discussions / reflections with community members from Saugeen First Nation and Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation are some of the additional elements that will be available in the exhibition.
The Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre, in partnership with the Legacy of Hope Foundation, Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON), Saugeen Advocacy for Healing, and Grey Bruce Health Services are pleased to bring this exhibition to the community.
