Two October Events: Exhibit and Panel Presentation
September 28, 2015
We are one month into the new academic year and we already have several events to announce, two of which are in the month of October.
The Corning Centre will be presenting an audio-visual exhibit titled “Canada, We Thank You” at Toronto City Hall from October 22 to 28. An opening ceremony and public reception will take place on Thursday, October 22 at 6:00 pm.
The exhibit is dedicated to Canada’s humanitarian contributions before, during and after the Armenian Genocide. While at the exhibit, visitors will have an opportunity to learn about various individuals, families and institutions that played active roles in humanitarian efforts in the Ottoman Empire. The Corning Centre’s 100 Voices Project will also be featured at the exhibit, where visitors will get a chance to view several interviews.
We encourage educators to take advantage of this unique opportunity by organizing field trips with their students. The free resources on our website can be used to prepare students for their visit.
The Corning Centre will also be co-sponsoring an informative and thought-provoking panel presentation titled “The Armenian Genocide and Its Impact” on Friday, October 23 at 7:30 pm.
It will take place at Ryerson University and will feature world-renowned professors Richard G. Hovannisian, Ervin Staub, Khatchig Mouradian and Alan Whitehorn.
We look forward to seeing you at both events.
