Representation and Dialogue
What do we have in common with others? How do different cultures interpret the world in which we live? In this activity, students will explore the inspiring treasure trove of narratives and depictions contained within the Museum’s Wing for the Arts of One World in order to gain a deeper understanding of fundamental human needs. In so doing, they will discover the commonalities among different realities.

Planning your visit
The group entrance is located at 2075 Bishop Street.
If you are coming by school bus, allow extra time for potential traffic congestion.
The Museum is a 5-minute walk from the Guy-Concordia Métro station (Guy exit).
Allow sufficient time
Allow approximately 30 minutes for students to be greeted at the entrance, to go to the cloakroom and washroom, and to be divided into groups.
To facilitate movement through the galleries and ensure that everyone gets a good view of the works, each class will be divided into two subgroups composed of a maximum of 15 students (11 for preschool groups). The class will regroup afterward in the workshop, if applicable.
