The Together truck is driving change across Canada – and on October 3, 2016 it rolls into Ottawa.

Together: An exhibition on global development is an interactive, bilingual experience for all ages, highlighting Canadian contributions to positive change around the world.

Visitors are invited to climb aboard and explore a custom-built truck with 1,000 square feet of exhibition space, traveling coast-to-coast over the next two years.

The exhibition features powerful photography, film, and audio; one-of-a-kind artifacts; an interactive world map of Canadian contributions overseas; and a skills quiz for visitors to discover how they can contribute to the fight against poverty.

The Together exhibition will be open to the public, free of charge at the following:

  • A.Y. Jackson Secondary School (150 Abbeyhill Dr., Kanata, ON) on Monday, October 3, 2016 from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • The Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat (199 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, ON) on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Together was developed by Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC), and features the work of 21 Canadian organizations working to reduce poverty around the world.

“Today’s global development challenges are immense and complex, but there are solutions – many of them thanks to Canada’s leadership and collaboration,” said Khalil Z. Shariff, Chief Executive Officer of AKFC. “Together will spark and inform a conversation about the extraordinary ways in which Canadians are making a difference in the developing world.”

The exhibition was developed with the financial support of the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada.
