Schedule:

Each session, expert guest speakers will join Museum interpreters to facilitate conversations that focus on a different aspect of the humanitarian crisis facing the Rohingya people:

  • discrimination and persecution;
  • forced migration and displacement;
  • identity and sense of belonging;
  • experiences of women and children;
  • and protection of rights for stateless people.

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

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

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.
