Stories of Home: Finding Community and Belonging in Peel

Fall 2024

Stories of Home: Finding Community and Belonging in Peel looks at what home means to the people living, working in and visiting Peel. Throughout history finding a home in Peel has been exciting, overwhelming and at times, difficult. This exhibit explores the ideas around establishing connection to place, and people in creating a sense of belonging that strengthens community. Through personal stories, video, images and objects, this exhibit will showcase connections between the Peel of the past, today and the future.

“The moment the visitor enters the exhibition, they are immersed into a space that welcomes our differences,” said Amy Dunlop, Museum Curator. “It is our hope that this exhibit invites us all to explore and celebrate Peel’s diverse histories and lived experiences as well as celebrating how we all come together to find a place of belonging in the Region.”
