“Together: An Exhibition on Global Development” visits Trent University

The Mobile Exhibition

This Tuesday October 6 and Wednesday October 7, the Student Association for International Development (SAID) invites you to the Aga Khan Foundation’s

“Together: An Exhibition on Global Development.” The exhibition has been making its way all across Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada, with the purpose of sparking a discussion around the processes driving global change and more specifically, Canada’s role in this practice.

This unique mobile exhibition has been rolling through Eastern Canada in a 53-foot, custom vehicle which opens into 1,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space. It features powerful photography, film and audio, interactive components, and artifacts related to global dynamics of development and change. The Together Exhibition has been described as an “innovative, interactive, and multi-sensory experience.”

The goal of this exhibition is to attract students and community members from diverse backgrounds and fields of expertise in order to promote a discussion and explore the possibilities of global change through a dynamic and interactive process of knowledge sharing.

The free exhibition will be open to the public of all ages from October 6 to October 7 from 11AM to 7PM. The immense truck will be hard to miss in Bata Library, Parking Lot H. Together Exhibition welcomes you to engage in this discussion, no matter your major, your worldviews, your age, or your background.

In addition to this exhibit, the Aga Khan Foundation, SAID, and the International Development Studies Department invite you to participate in an interactive workshop designed to explore solutions to pressing local and global challenges and to empower you to take action as a global citizen. This workshop will take place on Wednesday, October 6 from 5PM to 7PM at the Champlain College Living Learning Commons. (Refreshments will be served.)

Engaging in these kinds of discussions and attending exhibitions that not only seek to raise awareness on global issues, but to provide practical skills to address them, are truly unique and immensely enlightening. Make sure to stop by; it will be worth the time!
