In-person History & heritage Intercultural Interdisciplinary Museum Visual arts

Exploring CQ: A Journey Through the 10 Cultural Clusters is a photographic exhibition by cultural intelligence facilitator Wilbur Sargunaraj. OPENING WEEKEND EVENTS! Friday, October 1st - 10 to 11 am: COFFEE CHAT WITH WILBUR in the Grand Coteau Centre Gallery Saturday, October 2nd - 10 am to 12 Noon: MEET THE ARTIST OPEN HOUSE in the Grand Coteau Centre Gallery Based on the work of the GLOBE leadership study and the Cultural Intelligence Center, the exhibit is a virtual journey designed to help people increase their CQ by learning about the 10 cultural clusters and 10 cultural values. The exhibit introduces people to Cultural Intelligence with the goal of inspiring them to build bridges across cultural differences. ‘Exploring CQ’ features a series of photographs taken by Wilbur over the last decade as he journeyed across the 10 cultural clusters to work and partner with various communities and organizations. The relationships and friendships that were formed by these cross-cultural interactions are the inspiration behind the photo exhibit. “Wilbur invites us to travel with him into a world in which we celebrate difference and embrace the learning brought to us by newfound friends. Wilbur's curiosity offers us access to parts of ourselves that only come to life when we are encountering the other. He offers people questions that bring out the values of humility, vulnerability, acceptance, generosity, service, and simplicity--the values that make us our best human selves.”- Dr. Ron Lalonde, Regional Manager Middle East Institute of Positive Education This World Premiere exhibition will be showing in the Grand Coteau Heritage & Cultural Centre Gallery in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan from October 1 to 29, 2021. The Asia debut of ‘Exploring CQ’ will take place in Bangalore, India, November 2021. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. Masks are mandatory. Provincial Health Orders will be followed.
