Join us for our International Development Week (IDW 2019) flagship event, Canada Cares: IDW 2019 Celebration in Ottawa, at Canada’s National Arts Centre (NAC) on Tuesday, February 5, 2019.
This free, public event brings together Canada’s international development community during Winterlude for a full day of interactive activities, workshops, and performances from 12pm to 5pm, followed by a reception from 5pm to 7pm with the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development.
Take a stroll through the NAC’s Canada Room and foyer where visitors will cross paths with a giant globe, a rickshaw ambulance, and a virtual reality exhibit that simulates the experience of being a humanitarian worker in the field. Get acquainted with the people on the front lines of international development work through a series of photo exhibits, film shorts, live performances, and workshops to discover how your actions can make a world of difference.
