THEMUSEUM is also proud to partner with the Brain Injury Association Waterloo-Wellington to host Unmasking Brain Injury Project. This emotional exhibition tells the story of local brain injury survivors through a powerful art display.

The painted and decorated masks, as well as a brief synopsis of how the injury was sustained and the impact on their life, can be viewed in the first floor cafeteria.

The Unmasking Brain Injury project is part of a province-wide initiative that provides survivors a powerful way to tell their stories, making the invisible, visible. Further information on the project is available here.

THEMUSEUM’s newest exhibition, BRAIN: The World Inside Your Head uses hands-on installations to show how the brain functions – and sometimes – malfunctions. It runs until April 28, 2019.
