Documenting Downtown Change

November 1, 2016 – January 7, 2017

Documenting Downtown Change is a photography exhibition and dialogue that shares moments in a changing Downtown Kitchener through the eyes of community members. Photos in the exhibition were captured by those who live, work, connect, or access goods and services in the downtown core, and depict spaces of connection and division. A deeper look at everyday places highlights the social distance existing between people who inhabit the same physical space. 


Join the University of Waterloo on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at THEMUSEUM for the opening of Documenting Downtown Change. 

The night will feature the team behind the project and a panel of local experts as they lead a community discussion exploring what downtown change means for Kitchener.

Hilary Abel (City of Kitchener)
John Neufeld (House of Friendship)
Laura Mae Lindo (Laurier University)
Albert Rempel (Working Centre)

The event will run from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM and will include food and live music. This event is Pay What You can with a suggested $10 donation in support of THEMUSEUM.
