Photography Exhibition About Reconciliation Opens at PAMA This Weekend

BRAMPTON, ON. (Sept. 27, 2018) – Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) presents Caring Across Boundaries: A Photography Exhibition, from the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada. It is a collaboration between photographer Liam Sharp, champion for First Nations children Cindy Blackstock, and three First Nations communities in Ontario, New Brunswick and British Columbia.

In a visual journey aimed toward reconciliation, Caring Across Boundaries brings awareness to the challenges and dreams of First Nations communities. Reconciliation is based on a better understanding of our shared history and is built on mutual trust, respect, and a genuine commitment to our collective well-being and prosperity.

Caring Across Boundaries opens this weekend during PAMA’s Culture Days celebrations. PAMA is free all weekend during Culture Days, September 29 and 30, as part of a cultural collaboration with the Region of Peel, the City of Brampton, the Brampton Library and our creative community.
