Please join us on Thursday, October 24th, for the launch cocktail of Je Me Souvien’s new activities, based off of the RMR Museum’s latest exhibition: “Remembering Afghanistan: Reflections of Canadian Soldiers.”
Catering provided by la Centre des Femmes Afghanes de Montréal.
Teachers are invited to enter a raffle to win a trip (with transportation included) to the Musée du Fort Saint-Jean, a national historic site!
We will also be celebrating the premiere of the new exhibition, which contains timelines, testimonials, artifacts and videos of veterans sharing their experiences.
Both the exhibition and educational activities are designed to help students gain a deeper knowledge of the war in Afghanistan and to think critically about Canada’s participation in the conflict. The key word is “remembering” and the conflict is explored through the eyes of those who were there. Our understanding of the conflict in Afghanistan and its impacts is still in motion. How will the war in Afghanistan be remembered? Was it worth it? These are questions that cannot yet be answered, but it is time that we start thinking about them together.
Be among the first to see our new travelling exhibition and get your copy of the latest Je Me Souviens educational module!
