“Free Wednesdays at Aga Khan Museum”

Special invitation to be extended to local communities

The new initiative “Free Wednesdays at Aga Khan Museum” was launched on February 18, welcoming the public to visit the Aga Khan Museum and all exhibitions for free each Wednesday from 4 – 8 pm. In the coming weeks, a special invitation will be issued to residents of neighbourhoods close to the Museum that have been identified as Neighbourhood Improvement Areas (NIAs) by the City of Toronto: Flemingdon Park, Thorncliffe Park, and Victoria Village. Henry Kim, Director and CEO of the Aga Khan Museum, explains: “A key part of our mandate at the Aga Khan Museum is making the arts of Muslim civilizations accessible to everyone so that visitors can appreciate connections between peoples and across time. We’ve already done this by offering a tremendous range of programming for all ages and interest levels, but we also want to remove economic barriers that might prevent visitors from experiencing this Museum. Offering Free Wednesdays will go a long way in doing just that.”

Kim adds that the Free Wednesdays program is part of a larger initiative to help strengthen ties between the Museum and Toronto communities. Plans are underway to develop public programming during Free Wednesdays that will tap into the interests of neighbourhood youth.
