May 23rd from 7pm-9:30pm

This year's Orwell Art Gallery will feature works from 8 Toronto Catholic District School Board classes in 3 different high schools across the city. 
 
Michael Power/St. Joseph, Marshall McLuhan and Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts Catholic Secondary School teachers and students have engaged in this unique learning opportunity which involved learning about urgent human rights issues, democracy and active global citizenship.
 
In the process, students connected in person with visiting scholars from Ukraine and over skype and social media with New York Author and Journalist, Andrea Chalupa- the author of the book, Orwell and the Refugees: The Untold Story of Animal Farm.
