Sites of Nonresistance.

War monuments, cenotaphs and honour rolls remind us daily of the most dramatic and familiar stories of war.  This exhibit tells war stories of a different kind, and lays out an alternative memorial landscape—the landscape of nonresistance.

These stories are gleaned from letters, diaries, newspapers, photographs, government documents and family histories found in the Mennonite Archives of Ontario. Together, they paint a picture of the Great War from a “peace church” perspective.

Lori Gemmell

Harpist Lori Gemmell and tenor James McLean will perform a selection of classical music.  This concert features French songs by Debussy, Faure and Tournier, British Folk songs by Benjamin Britten, and Glen Buhr's setting of Tolkien's epic Tale of Tinuviel.

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 — 12:30 PM EST

Four members of the KW Symphony will play Debussy's First String Quartet, in G minor, Op. 10.

Don't let the formal title of this extraordinary work fool you!  Debussy's First String Quartet is anything but formal.  Its fleeting mood, ravishing grandeur, and subtlety of timbre eclipse the rigours of traditional form.  Follow that with the fun of William Bolcom's Ghost Rags and you'll find a classical road map to jazz.  Join friends from the KW Symphony in this performance of music that enlivens and inspires.

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 — 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM EST

Join us as we uncover the role that International Humanitarian Law (IHL) plays as an instrument of peace. This conference will address disarmament and arms control, the importance of education in conflict and peace times as well as health and disability in armed conflict. We will hear from experts in the field, including academics, practitioners, and representatives from the Canadian Red Cross society.

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 — 12:30 PM EST
