The exhibit is just one part of the local celebrations, later this month the Alliance Française will launch a series of videos on their YouTube channel featuring the researchers themselves sharing their passion for science and discovery. Curator and scientific director, Jean-Eric Ghia, Associate Professor at the Department of Immunology, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences and Honorary Consul of France, Winnipeg, says he hopes the unique exhibition will inspire a future generation to pursue science.
“As a researcher, I believe it is essential to share our scientific knowledge with as many people as possible, in different formats. Images generated by researchers are not only critical in science, but they can also be used to initiate discussions. Besides, images can awaken our curiosity, convey a sense of beauty and emotion and inspire scientific career.’
