    Online from February 9, 2021 to March 31, 2021

    During these unprecedented times we have witnessed the overwhelming cries to address Anti-Black Racism, Systemic Discrimination and Social Justice Reform worldwide following the death of George Floyd. We now know as Canadians that we are not exempt from these challenges and there is an urgent need for decisive action now. Around Canada, and in our small community of Dufferin County, Ontario, we have witnessed diverse groups of individuals come together to work towards a collective goal – naming the problems finding solutions and standing in solidarity.

    For this special Black History Month Digital Exhibition, the Museum of Dufferin in partnership with the Dufferin County Canadian Black Association invited artists and photographers from across Canada to submit. Our Jurors selected pieces that best represent the theme “Solidarity in My Community”.

    Heat Waves. Flooding. Snow Storms. Drought. People are drawn to extreme events. Still more wonder how climate change will impact them. Many still believe that it isn’t real. 2019 was the hottest year on record!

    The Museum of Dufferin has partnered with Climate Action in Dufferin to create a digital exhibition to explore one of today’s hottest topics: climate change. Drawing on the latest science, you will discover what climate change means for us here in Dufferin County, from the local impacts to the community solutions that can help us reduce our emissions and adapt to changing climate conditions.
