What Have You Kept From Childhood?

This exhibit focuses on the objects that people give and get to celebrate life’s milestones. It doesn’t matter what religion or culture you are, we all keep things that families and friends offer to mark the birth of a child. Also examined are other milestones in a child’s development, including the rites of passage and traditions celebrated by various cultural groups in Toronto.
