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.
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.
This is a concert about storytelling. Surprisingly, Rossini's Barber of Seville is not a story about a rabbit masquerading as a barber but a love story complete with disguises and mistaken identity and love triumphs in the end. The overture was written for a different opera actually, "Aureliano in Palmira". Rossini borrowed it as he had run out of time.
