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.

Monday, January 7, 2019 — 10:00 PM to Saturday, January 19, 2019 — 10:00 PM EST to Sat, 01/19/2019 - 22:00

Gichitwaawizi’igewin: Honouring

In this exhibit, artist Catherine Dallaire re-examines the original Indigenous values in animal and plant life that are often vilified by contemporary Western settler culture. Building understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous worldviews is an important step towards peace and conciliation in the Canadian context. Creating space for Indigenous wisdom to guide culture and policy is an integral part of building peace and justice.
