Evening Event

At 5:00pm a gallery tour for the CAPNE 2019 Conference will be held at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR), which is within walking distance of the Fort Garry hotel, followed by dinner.

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights opened in September 2014 and is the first museum solely dedicated to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights.

Gallery Tour

  • Human rights stories are showcased from multiple perspectives, in unique and remarkable ways.
  • The Museum also houses a vast digital collection of recorded oral histories, relayed by people with lived experience of human rights in Canada and around the world.
  • Dynamic, interactive exhibits – presented by master exhibit designer Ralph Appelbaum Associates – are arranged around human rights themes, using multimedia technology and stunning visuals.
  • Interpretive learning programs use human interaction to enhance the museum experience. Activities include games, issue-based theatre, art, music, debates and discussion.
  • A self-guided audio tour is available on the Museum’s award-winning mobile app, which can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play (search “Canadian Museum for Human Rights”).
  • Beyond the walls, programs extend to a robust online presence, lectures, outreach kits, a national teachers’ resource data base and a national student program.
