Unique Lives & Experiences | Featuring Bensen Furniture | cont.
We were invited to, not only enjoy a wonderful evening exploring the intriguing past of Canada’s 27th Governor General, but to create a suitable stage for her to speak on.
This was no easy task – Honourable Michaëlle Jean fled from torture in Haiti with her family as a child and began her career co-founding a network of shelters, across Canada, to help women and their children escape voilent situations. She went on to achieve what most could only dream of and, in 2009, started the Michaëlle Jean Foundation promoting youth and the arts in an effort for social change and awareness. Who better to advocate “that we should never bow down in the face of a challenge.”. Many went home inspired and feeling a little stronger that night.
In light of Jean’s unfaltering care for a healthy home, we created a simple “domestic / home” arrangement, the majority of the pieces displayed were designed and/or manufactured in Canada.
If you attended the evening, we’d love for you to share your comments below. Should you like any more information on any of the pieces featured that evening, please do not hesitate to contact us.
