web only - Visit the Canadian Museum for Human Rights


| May 15, 2020

This inspirational and thought-provoking museum consists of various galleries and exhibitions, with its 10 core galleries focusing on human rights themes. Stories relay the importance of rights for all using the latest technologies, the power of art and old forms of storytelling. Examples include 'Inspiring Change' , which incorporates objects and images from events that have promoted human rights and is intended to spark personal reflection on how we can contribute to positive social change. Another gallery, 'Breaking the Silence', explores the role of secrecy and denial in many atrocities around the world, with its centre piece being a digital study table that presents images and documents relating to mass human rights violations.
