We are pleased to announce our participation in the Sara Corning Society’s Commemoration Weekend, September 13–15, 2019, in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. See the flyer below for the details of this weekend meant to commemorate our centre’s namesake.

The Corning Centre will be hosting a presentation on Saturday, September 14, at 9:00 AM, at the Tri-County Regional Centre for Education (79 Water Street, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia). This event is open to all educators, school community members, and those interested in genocide education and the Corning Centre’s work. Presenting will be the founder of the Corning Centre, Raffi Sarkissian, and the Centre’s director of education, Levon Sarmazian. Their presentation will focus on the process that led to naming the Centre after Sara Corning, their work, as well as Canada’s role in genocide education and prevention.
