Kitchener, ON – THEMUSEUM is pleased to announce that on Sunday, May 15 at 1:00pm it will host a forum on Dying with Dignity, which is part of The Aging Dialogues Exhibition. Minister Bardish Chagger will be taking questions from the audience in order to create a dialogue on an issue that has been a recent focus in Canadian media. 

“We are pleased to open up the discussion about Dying with Dignity,” said David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM. “It has been exciting to see the conversations, opinions, and reflections of our community shared at The Aging Dialogues and this last dialogue is sure to spark debate.” 

The Aging Dialogues: Sharing Wisdom, Preserving Our Legacies focuses on human connections, and showcases diverse voices and creativity that spans generations; shared memories, relationships, and personal belongings highlight the exhibition, as well as videos and photographs. A dialogue series, featuring prominent speakers, film screenings and events has accompanied this exhibition. After many eye-opening dialogues, including the perspective of Hazel McCallion, the series will take on the often debated topic of Dying with Dignity.
