Youth on Reconciliation exhibit opens at BCM&CC September 18

On September 18, the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre, in partnership with the Legacy of Hope Foundation (LHF), Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON), Saugeen Advocacy for Healing, M’Wikwedong Indigenous Friendship Centre, Bruce Grey Catholic School Board, Bluewater District School Board, Grey Bruce Community Legal Clinic and Grey Bruce Health Services are pleased to open the exhibition from the Legacy of Hope Foundation: Youth on Reconciliation. The exhibition is open to the public and runs until November 30, 2023.

The exhibition from the LHF features artworks and poems by winners of the first Imagine a Canada competition (in March 2016) and explores the concept of Reconciliation through artistic expression and what that means to youth in Canada. The project committee members have been collaborating to ensure that additional components, programming elements and local resources have been included to ensure a more localized and educational experience. 21 Things About the Indian Act, UNDRIP (United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples), wellness and educational resources as well as weekly informal discussions / reflections with community members from Saugeen First Nation and Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation are some of the additional elements that will be available in the exhibition.

As a special addition to the exhibition, young people are encouraged to create an original artwork in any medium inspired by what the future of Canada can look like through the lens of hope, respect, and Reconciliation. Submitted artworks will be featured in the exhibit space. All art entries received by September 14 will be included in a draw for a chance to win a Nintendo Switch Lite.
