About this Event

Join us for an exclusive screening event at the Canadian War Museum (Ottawa) on December 29. This is a rare opportunity to see how artists can promote cultural diversity through their passion for art, and positively influence the lives of young and old alike.

Of Peace and Understanding is a project that aims to promote cultural diversity and contribute to community development. This collective project also tries to contribute to the fight against racism through collaborative initiatives between different groups wishing to bring peace and understanding to the Canadian society.

With the support of Canadian Heritage, the B.A.D.R Community Centre is proud to bring this project to life through five mini-documentaries on outstanding artists who embody the beauty of cultural diversity.
