Recently launched in Toronto and Ottawa, Global Connections is a new exhibition that showcases the extraordinary work of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN). Featuring large-scale photography and stories from around the world, [title] explores how commitment, drive, and collaboration are at the heart of building stronger societies globally — and how, together, Canada and the AKDN are contributing to lasting, positive change.
Presented on three large pillars, or “monoliths”, the exhibit’s structure reflects the AKDN’s unique, three-part approach to development that integrates attention to the social, economic and cultural dimensions of quality of life. Global Connections introduces visitors to His Highness the Aga Khan, Founder and Chairman of the AKDN, and to the ethical foundations and belief in a shared humanity that drive the Network’s global development efforts. The exhibition also highlights the decades-long partnership with Canada and Canadians to build a more peaceful, prosperous, and pluralist world for all.
