IAMD Student Work included in Making Peace

 

Saturday, May 13, 2017

"Making Peace is a major public event that aims to teach the public, especially young people what key elements are necessary to create a 'sustainable peace'; providing an opportunity for people of all ages to get involved in bringing about positive change. Activities include a large photographic exhibition that pays tribute to the people who — all over the planet — devote their time, energy and resources to the cause of peace."

The Registry, an interactive installation from Mariam Magsi's Purdah thesis exhibition at OCAD University, has been selected for exhibition at Making Peace curated by Ashley Woods, former curator of Magnum Photos and current curator at the Nobel Peace Prize Museum in Stockholm.  

All are welcome to attend the opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, May 13, 2:00 pm, Front Street East, Canary District, Corktown, Toronto.
