CentrePlace Pavilion

Canadian Museum for Human Rights



The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) is planning something truly unique and engaging at the Winter Games.

Opening in 2012, the CMHR will be a beacon for Canadians and people around the world to explore human rights and to promote dialogue, understanding and respect. The Museum will welcome people of all ages, genders, abilities, cultures, orientation and beliefs; inviting us all to help combat prejudice, intolerance and discrimination.

Before the Museum opens however, we want to promote dialogue and we will do so at the Museum's unique display located in a feature exhibit space in the CentrePlace Manitoba pavilion.

The CMHR’s feature exhibit will include:

The opportunity for visitors to express their thoughts about human rights in front of a three-dimensional wall mural of the future site of the CMHR. Visitors will be invited to complete the sentence: "Everyone has the right to...", by writing down their thoughts on a large handheld signboard, and then posing for a picture in front the image of the Museum. CMHR ambassadors will take the pictures and broadcast them on a large monitor outside of the pavilion.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to purchase a Human Rights Star pin and/or, a printed copy of their picture in a limited edition commemorative photo frame - a wonderful souvenir of the experience! All proceeds will go to help build the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
