Rebuilding Hope

Date: September 10, 2008 Category:

In 2009, the IwB held an exhibition at the Sharon Temple National Historic Site and Museum, in collaboration with the Sharon Temple Museum Society and Habitat for Humanity. The exhibition highlighted the role of the historic Sharon Temple builders and residents of the Town of Sharon called the Children of Peace, who played a crucial role in promoting democracy, justice, and charity in Canada. To this end, the Rebuilding Hope Exhibition was a contemporary interpretation of the principles and values of the Children of Peace through the work being done by the IwB and Habitat for Humanity, which strive for sustainable community development and social justice.

The Rebuilding Hope Catalogue below includes essays by project participants and experts as well as details of projects presented at the exhibition.
