Pixel Perfect

Explore Rights of Passage: Canada at 150 on its opening day in our Level 6 gallery. Using technology from different eras, this exhibition explores human rights stories from some of the iconic moments and people from Canada’s history to present day.

The exhibition shares Indigenous stories and perspectives on human rights including through pixelated images created by Indigenous youth.

Join program interpreters for a fun-filled family activity, suitable for all ages, where you will be invited to use colouring pages, Lego or Lite-Brites to create your own unique, pixelated representation of what human rights mean to you. Share the story behind your creation with our interpreters!
