Montrealers to explore Canada's role in the world

Bridges that Unite runs until March 26 at Concordia University

MONTREAL, March 8 /CNW Telbec/ - On Tuesday, March 9, media are invited to join Khalil Shariff, Chief Executive Officer of Aga Khan Foundation Canada, and Clarence Epstein, Director of Special Projects and Cultural Affairs for Concordia University, for a special preview of the Bridges that Unite exhibition.

For 25 years, Canada has been working with the Aga Khan Development Network in some of the world's most isolated and impoverished regions. Bridges that Unite, a thought-provoking touring exhibition, which opens officially on March 9 in Montreal, showcases the results of some of that work in photos, stories and film and invites visitors to think differently about Canada's role in the world in the 21st century.
