Behind Racism:
Challenging the Way We Think

July 8- September 24th

If you could better understand how your brain processes information that can lead to bias and racism, could it impact your behaviour and result in positive change? Behind Racism: Challenging the Way We Think shows how the mental processes that help us think and act quickly can lead to racism and discrimination. This new exhibition examines racism in Canada and encourages visitors to recognize bias, challenge discrimination and appreciate our differences.

For the duration of the exhibition, admission is pay what you can. The exhibition is available in English and French.
