Community Presents

The Community Presents program encourages cultural groups to create their own exhibitions and tell their own stories, while exploring themes related to immigration, cultural diversity, cultural heritage and identity.

Developing an Exhibit

It takes about 12 months to plan an exhibit. The Museum's curatorial team will provide guidance as you develop the content. Museum staff will work with your group to promote the exhibit and develop complementary activities and programs. Once complete, your exhibit will be on display for one to three months in Mirella and Lino Saputo Hall on the second floor.

Opening Reception

Celebrate your exhibit with special guests and the general public with an opening reception. Our team will help you plan a successful launch for your exhibit.

How to Apply

Due to the time and effort it takes to develop a Community Presents exhibit, we ask that you apply at least 12 months in advance. Once you submit your proposal, it will be reviewed by our Exhibition Committee. The Museum will assess whether it fits our mandate of exploring immigration themes, enhancing public understanding of immigrant experiences and the roles and contributions of immigrants to Canada.
