Two Museums in Dialogue – Winnipeg
April is Genocide Remembrance, Condemnation and Prevention Month.
In 20th century, the world has witnessed several horrific genocides.
What role can museums play? How can museums educate the public, and especially youth, about genocide and mass atrocities?
Join our President and CEO John Young and Olesia Stasiuk, General Director of the national Holodomor memorial in Ukraine, for what promises to be an insightful discussion. They will share their perspectives on what works and doesn’t work in their own institutions.
Olesia Stasiuk’s presentation and discussion with John Young will be delivered in Ukrainian with consecutive translation into English.
The evening includes the screening of the short documentary Covering the Holodomor: Memory Eternal, a collaborative project between the two museums, and an audience question-and-answer period.
A new exhibition from the national Holodomor memorial in Ukraine will be on display during the event, sponsored by Ucrainica Research Institute.
