Last day to visit 1,000-square-foot mobile exhibit Together at Claremont

Wednesday is the last day to visit the Canada 150: the Together exhibition in Greater Victoria.

Wednesday is the last day to visit the Canada 150: the Together exhibition on global development in Greater Victoria.

The exhibit is open to the public today from 3 to 5 p.m. at Claremont secondary, 4980 Wesley Rd.

Francois Grenier has toured Canada for eight months with the custom-built truck, a 1,000-square-foot exhibition with an interactive, bilingual experience that highlights Canadian contributions to positive change around the world.

“It’s been a long journey,” Grenier said.

As part of Canada’s 150th celebrations, the Together exhibit toured the country to showcase Canada’s leadership in promoting a more peaceful, prosperous, equal, and pluralist world for all.

The tour will host its final visitors at Garibaldi secondary in Maple Ridge next week.

It was here in Saanich for the Victoria Forum at UVic throughout the weekend and has hosted Claremont students the past two days.

Together was developed by Aga Khan Foundation Canada.
