The exhibit brought back for me the words of poet Chrystos, who said, "my purpose [in writing] is to make it as clear & as inescapably as possible, what the conditions of our lives are" (Not Vanishing, 1988). The Ottawa Citizen featured a wonderful review of the exhibit including the pictures I've posted here.
This blog is the digital space where I reside online. This space is open to students, interested readers, and is a place where I share my adventures in reading, challenge the status quo, present ideas, and share new and captivating finds from the field of education and the wider world -- both on and offline.
I ask that if you have private questions to please email me at my University of Ottawa account rather than post here.
