Bridges that Unite, a bilingual, traveling exhibition invites visitors to explore Canada’s role in the world through the lens of a remarkable but little-known partnership with the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) in some of the world’s most impoverished regions. Drawing on the shared experiences of Canada and the AKDN in the developing world, Bridges that Unite will facilitate debate and dialogue on contemporary attitudes and trends towards critical global issues. Through the creative interplay of audio, video, text panels and interactive components, Bridges that Unite will engage visitors in a journey that will challenge them to confront typical assumptions about what international development is and what it can achieve. Accompanying the exhibition will be a robust programming component to extend dialogue on critical issues through panel discussions, lectures, guided tours, cultural events and activities for youth. The goal of the exhibition ultimately, is to inspire a dynamic, constructive and forward-thinking vision for Canada’s role in the 21st Century.
The exhibition will launch a national tour on February 1-13th, 2008 starting in Victoria, British Columbia at the Victoria Conference Centre. For more information please visit http://www.bridgesthatunite.ca or contact Aga Khan Foundation Canada at 1 800-267-2532.
