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.

Blue and white porcelain birds made by Soheila Esfahani

Soheila Esfahani

This exhibition features the work of artist and cultural translator Soheila Esfahani. As an Iranian Canadian, Soheila has lived in what she calls a “negotiated third space” and her artwork emerges from her reflections on this experience.

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.
