    The Rocky Mountains reflected in a lake in AlbertaAugust 8 - September 2, 2019

    The work displayed entitled, From Far and Wide: Canada Coast to Coast, is a collection I curated showcasing sights across the country. In July 2017, I was one of approximately 4,000 Canadian youth who experienced cross-country train travel as part of Canada150 celebrations. Inspired by landscapes and architecture, I captured photographs from coast to coast. The experience, which was all self-planned and organized, gave me the opportunity to stop and photograph in Ottawa, Quebec City, Halifax, Prince Edward Island, Montreal, Edmonton, Jasper, Banff, Yoho, Victoria, Whistler, and Vancouver.

    The Canadian Language Museum presents Read Between the Signs: 150 Years of Language in Toronto

    Toronto’s diverse languages shape our city’s streets. These languages are part of the landscape, visible in storefronts, building facades, and street signs. They can reflect, and sometimes even obscure, the communities that live and work in this city. In presenting a visual history of Toronto’s languages, this exhibition makes use of archival and contemporary photos.

    ABOUT THE MUSEUM
    The Canadian Language Museum was established in 2011 to promote an appreciation of all of the languages spoken in Canada and of their role in the development of this nation. The Canadian Language Museum encourages dialogue on language issues that are central to the future of Canadian society, such as bilingualism, multilingualism, and language endangerment, preservation and revitalization.
