The first temporary exhibition at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights will be dedicated to peace.
“Peace — The Exhibition” is a travelling him exhibit developed by the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, which explores the ways that Canadians have defined, made and kept peace at home and around the world.
“We welcome this opportunity to work with another national museum to help tell our country’s rich and diverse human rights story,” said CMHR president and CEO Stuart Murray. “Peace and human rights rely on each other.”
Peace is examined on three levels: how we negotiate to obtain and protect it; how we organize and demonstrate to demand it; and, sometimes, how we fight to achieve it.
The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 in Halifax is currently hosting components of the exhibit until October 19. The CMHR will present the travelling exhibition in its Expressions gallery when it opens on September 20.
