TO LIVE PRESENTS MANDELA HAPPENING IN THE GALLERY
The Exhibition for Everyone Who Refuses to See the World in Black and White. When Nelson Mandela was freed after 27 years in South African prisons, his first state visit was to Canada. Such was his affinity for our values and support. We made him our nation’s first living honourary Canadian citizen. Now, TO Live presents an exhibition to honour him again.
Only until January 5.
Witness Mandela’s lifelong fight against apartheid—a system of white supremacy in South Africa.
Follow Mandela into hiding after he is declared an outlaw, and join him inside a replica of the tiny cell that was his home.
Learn how the architects of apartheid took pages from Canada’s own history.
And discover the strength of Mandela’s determination.
Witness children defending themselves from tanks with garbage can lids, and learn of the secret plan to break Mandela out of prison.
See how Mandela’s humility and tolerance inspired the world to come together and oppose apartheid, including Canadians who joined the fight for equality.
And know your own courage to speak out, for “fools multiply when men are silent.”
Be inspired by Mandela’s kindness and capacity for foregiveness. Experience his hope for a better world, in which freedom, justice, and dignity were valued for all people.
And see why Mandela’s values must continue to guide our choices today.
Only Until January 5
Tuesday and Wednesday 1pm–6pm; Thursday to Sunday 10am–6pm
