Please join us on Wednesday November 9  for our first Salon of this Season,

An Evening with Rita Leistner

We are thrilled to welcome as guest speaker, award-winning photojournalist, professor in both Victoria College’s Jewison stream and University of Toronto’s Creative Expression and Society Program, Rita Leistner.  As an acclaimed war photographer and documentarian, Rita Leistner has chronicled the devastation of civilian life in war-torn countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq, as well as the many social and emotional battles waged in Canada by indigenous women. Currently her interests incorporate a more hopeful side of life: the sustaining of Canada's rich natural heritage, parks, lakes , rivers and trees.
