Dates: September 8, 2014 to January 18, 2015
An exhibition of 22 Paintings by Winnipeg artist Ray Dirks.
A project of the Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery, Winnipeg.
In art and words, the exhibit tells the dramatic stories of women and their families who fled the Soviet Union in the decade after the Russian Revolution and during World War II. Despite the despair, horror and loss each of these families faced, at its core, this exhibit is about love, courage, humility, determination and faith.
Jamie Swift, co-author of Warrior Nation: Rebranding Canada in an Age of Anxiety.
Canada's Vimy Ridge war memorial features the statue "Breaking of the Sword." Has this peace message been eclipsed by a glorious, birth-of-a-nation war story? How can we commemorate the tragedy of World War I by emphasizing peace?
Join us as we discuss these questions by starting a PeaceQuest affiliate in Waterloo! PeaceQuest is a grassroots organization dedicated to stimulating conversation about peace and Canada's role in peacemaking during the WW I centenaries.
