Time to Act: Rohingya Voices

August 10, 2019 to April 5, 2020. August 10, 2019 to April 5, 2020Time to Act: Rohingya Voices was developed by the Museum in collaboration with photojournalist Kevin Frayer and a group of Rohingya and Burmese community members who live in Canada.Frayer's photographs appear in this exhibition as part of a larger body of his work from 2017 called Desperate Journey: The Rohingya Exodus. The photographs document the flight of Rohingya refugees from deadly violence in Myanmar and the physical hardships of life in the refugee camps in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. Members of the Rohingya community who live in Canada contributed video footage, photographs, artifacts and interviews to the exhibition. These elements not only document the humanitarian and refugee crisis in Bangladesh, but also community life in Canada. Some community members are also participants in a voice-driven interactive experience. When you visit the exhibition, you can get to know them and their life experiences through a personal exchange of questions and answers.Back .
