The innovative Together truck will arrive in Vancouver on April 28, hoping to inspire Canadians to take action to end global poverty and change the world for the better.
Together: An exhibition on global development is an interactive, bilingual experience, featuring powerful photography, a global citizen quiz and an interactive world map.
Visitors are invited to climb aboard and explore the custom-built truck with 1,000 square feet of exhibition space, travelling coast-to-coast over the next two years.
The truck was developed by the Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC), and features the work of 21 Canadian organizations working to reduce poverty around the world.
Visitors will also be able to share their own ideas for making a difference in the developing world, says AKFC’s Christine McGuire.
“Vancouver is celebrated for its global connectedness, diverse roots, and hubs of innovation and idea-sharing,” McGuire told Vancity Buzz. “We are very excited to launch our western and central Canada tour in Vancouver and celebrate Together!”
“We hope that visitors leave the exhibition feeling empowered and inspired to be agents of change in our world – that each and every one of us can make a difference locally and globally.
