The Aga Khan Museum will be hosting 1,000 square feet of travelling exhibition intended to shine a light on a global effort to end poverty and to issue a call to action to those who see it.
Together: an exhibition on global development, will roll in a 53-foot long trailer to the Aga Khan Museum, 77 Wynford Dr., in North York. It will be at the site from Thursday, Sept. 17 to Saturday, Sept. 19. Admission is free.
The Together exhibit was developed by the Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC), and it highlights its own work as well as 20 other Canadian organizations working to reduce poverty around the world.
The touring exhibit launched five months ago and has hosted 12,000 visitors across Canada, with the intention to inform visitors and to inspire them.
Visitors will climb aboard and witness an exhibition featuring photography, film, and audio, one-of-a-kind artefacts, and an interactive world map of Canadian contributions overseas. A quiz will show participants what kind of global citizens they are.
“Visitors will see faces and voices of people who are active and benefiting in global development. It’s introducing visitors to what is global development and how Canadians are making efforts all around the world to alleviate global poverty and to make positive change,” said Christine McGuire, public affairs officer for the Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC).
The AKFC and the Aga Khan Museum are separate organizations that are part of the Aga Khan Development Network.
The exhibit will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
