June 2 – June 24, 2018
6th Annual Refugee Art Show
THEMUSEUM is partnering with CCORIC to host the sixth annual Refugee Art Show for the month of June 2018.
This year’s local theme is “Becoming Neighbours”. People who have been fleeing persecution, war and conflict have found a safe and welcoming home in the Waterloo Region for many years. This June, help us acknowledge and celebrate their journey as well as those organizations that provide welcome and refuge, through a variety of locally run events.
THEMUSEUM is looking for artworks that reflect the 2018 theme and show the experience of moving to the Waterloo Region as a refugee. Express your own emotions and memories or tell us the story of your family, friends, or colleagues through the art you create.
We will also host art works created by children and youth. Children of any age are welcome to participate so that their stories and memories of coming to a new home are also acknowledged during this celebration.
We look forward to meeting you and learning more about your journey and art work!
