Inspiration | Evolution | Change
C-45 Quality Summit chose this evening venue not only for its striking beauty and innovation, but also for their similar values and purpose. CMHR's mandate is "to explore the subject of human rights, with special but not exclusive reference to Canada, in order to enhance the public's understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others, and to encourage reflection and dialogue." CMHR and the C-45 Summit are both on journeys to erase barriers and create meaningful, lasting change.
If you have time before or after the Summit, be sure to spend an afternoon exploring the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. It will take you on an upwards journey of #education and inspiration unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
“ We can play a critical role in engaging Canadians, and people from around the world, in discussion, dialogue and reflection about human rights…
- John Young, CEO of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the first museum solely dedicated to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. Their aim is to build not only a national hub for human rights learning and discovery, but a new era of global human rights leadership. Designed by architect Antoine Predock, the Museum building integrates form with purpose. The striking landmark stands as a symbol of the ongoing struggle to achieving human rights for all.
Creating inspiring encounters with human rights, the museum will engage Canadians and international visitors in an immersive, interactive experience that offers both the inspiration and tools to make a difference in the lives of others. The Canadian #Museum for #Human #Rights is the first national museum to be built in nearly half a century, and the first outside the National Capital Region.
