WINNIPEG — The latest exhibit at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights reveals the struggle for democracy and responsible government in the 30-year period before Canada became a nation.
1867: Rebellion & Confederation highlights a range of human rights issues that arose during this period, including abuse of state power, threats to personal liberty and freedom of the press, and challenges to linguistic, religious and voting rights. It also examines how Indigenous peoples were excluded from the still-unfinished process of Confederation, which for them marked a new period of dispossession and loss.
WINNIPEG — A major upcoming exhibition at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights will mark Canada’s 150th birthday with notable photographs.
The museum has put out a national photo call for Points of View, using crowd-sourced images to reflect themes in four categories — freedom of expression; inclusion and diversity; reconciliation; and human rights and the environment.
