Event details

Join group conversations about current human rights issues that are explored in the Museum’s newest exhibition, Time to Act: Rohingya Voices.

Free ticket required
Meet at Group Entrance

In December, we’ll be joined by an expert guest to help facilitate our conversation about the genocide against the Rohingya and the resulting humanitarian crisis. We’ll focus specifically on discrimination and persecution that forces people to leave their homes, communities and ways of life behind. 

Part of this program will take place in the exhibition space where powerful photographs and testimonials associated with each session’s topic will be examined and discussed together.

Everyone is welcome to participate and no background knowledge is required.

Connect with others to learn, get motivated, share thoughts and generate ideas for action to protect human rights.

All of the Conversation Circle event listings can be found by visiting the Conversation Circles program page.

Participants can register for one or more sessions.

Time to Act: Rohingya Voices was developed by the Museum in collaboration with photojournalist Kevin Frayer and a group of Rohingya and Burmese community members who live in Canada.

Please note that this program is subject to change or cancellation without notice.
