Starting Summer 2020
Starting this summer, help lay the foundation for a better world alongside your friends at the Aga Khan Museum.
We warmly invite you to join us for Rebuild 2020, the Museum’s reimagined programming lineup to reconnect and reinvigorate communities through the arts. With new programs and social initiatives, we aim to provide a welcoming, safe haven for people and communities to rediscover hope in the wake of a global crisis.
The five pillars of our Rebuild 2020 programming are:
Restore... our shared sense of safety with new, enhanced measures to ensure the well-being and comfort of everyone who enters the Museum.
Reconnect… with art, culture, and each other with exhibitions and experiences that stimulate the mind and nourish the soul.
Remember… what we’ve been through, who or what we lost, and who helped us along the way with new memorial projects and community-generated art displays.
Reimagine… a brighter future for all with interactive art installations, talks, and more opportunities to express your creative vision for a better world.
Rejoice… as we come together to celebrate each other, the beauty in our differences, and the common humanity we all share.
The first Rebuild 2020 initiative to launch calls on us to remember. For the What’s Your Sanctuary? project, we asked art lovers in Canada and around the world to send in their original photos, short videos, and stories representing how — and with whom — they found sanctuary during the COVID-19 lockdowns. Using the powerful visuals and testimonial we received, our Curatorial team has created a new companion art display to the Sanctuary exhibition now showing in our second-floor gallery.
