The Digital Divide
Are Canadian museums embracing digital or anxious about change?
From Vimy to Juno brings the legacy of Vimy Ridge and Juno Beach to Canadians across the country. Plank was honoured to help develop From Vimy To Juno—a multi-phased web project that explores the depth of Canada’s culture and identity through the lens of those who fought in and survived both World Wars.
The From Vimy to Juno Travelling Exhibit provides an opportunity for Canadians of all ages to learn about Canada’s role in the First and Second World Wars. It draws parallels between the two wars and examines Canada as a nation from 1914 to 1945.
Developed by the Juno Beach Centre in partnership with the Vimy Foundation, this program was made possible through the generous support of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
From November 22 - December 4, From Vimy to Juno will be on display at the RBC Arts and Heritage Centre of the Montreal General Hospital (MGH).
Affiliated with McGill University since 1832, the MGH has welcomed a number of notable physicians through its doors. Before enlisting in the First World War and writing his famous poem “In Flanders Fields,” John McCrae served as the resident pathologist at the MGH. Because of his close relationship with the hospital, today MGH commemorate this connection through their artifact collection, Remembrance Day events, and temporary exhibits.
