Highlighting Grebel Gallery artists

The Centre has begun highlighting artists whose work has been displayed at the Grebel Gallery. This month we showcased Soheila Esfahani, a Waterloo-based Iranian-Canadian creative whose work explores the idea of cultural translation.

Happy anniversary to us!

On September 21, the UN International Day of Peace, the Centre for  Peace Advancement celebrated its sixth year of catalyzing collaboration. Centre staff and participants gathered outside at the Grebel Gardens to catch up and eat some cookies.
