Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum is offering free admission to all Syrian newcomers during the run of their exhibition “Syria: A Living History,” which ends February 26, 2017.
“We want to welcome all Syrian newcomers to this country, and to ensure that they and their host families have the opportunity to join in our celebration of the diversity and history of Syria.
Making art accessible to all has always been a key part of our mandate and this outreach program is no exception.
We want Syrians to realize the value we place in their arrival in this country, and to understand that they are a vital part of the cultural mosaic of Canada.”
– Henry Kim, Director and CEO of the Aga Khan Museum
The show features historical artifacts from a number of collections, both public and private, and expands upon the contributions various cultures—Greek, Roman, Hittite, Sumerian, Persian, Ottoman, Arab, and Byzantine—have made to Syria and throughout the world.
