Travelling Exhibit Shares Stories of Discrimination

Post Date:03/04/2020 10:58 AM

Medicine Hat – The City of Medicine Hat is pleased to bring the exhibit I See You: Sawubona to Medicine Hat.

Sawubona is a Zulu greeting, meaning “we see you” and the exhibit helps tell a story. It features 11 different Albertans with lived experiences of discrimination, providing a rare opportunity to see through someone else’s eyes and to understand their experience. I See You: Sawubona is an invitation to participate in each other’s lives with videos, stories, life size photos, and quotes. The Sawubona exhibit is about recognizing the beauty and worth that all people bring to Medicine Hat.

The exhibit was created by the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in partnership with the Coalition Creating Equity and will be travelling around the community over the next six weeks.

The public is invited to visit the exhibit at the following locations:

  • March 2 to 8 - Veiner Centre
  • March 9 to 13 - Medicine Hat College
  • March 16 to 20 - City Hall
  • March 23 to 31 - Medicine Hat Public Library
  • April 1 to 10 - Location to be determined

The City of Medicine Hat extends a special thanks to our funding partners from Alberta Human Rights Education and Multiculturalism, and Family and Community Social Services, as well as our community partners, Unisphere, Saamis Immigration, Medicine Hat College, Miywasin Centre and the Medicine Hat Public Library.
