Music brings us together. But it also does so much more. Music embodies our highest aspirations for freedom, justice and equality.

Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights invites you to join us at Gala 2023: Raising Our Voices to celebrate the power of music and our upcoming new exhibition, Beyond the Beat: Music of Resistance and Change.

Gala 2023: Raising Our Voices

Wednesday, November 22 at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Reception: 5:30 PM | Dinner and Program: 6:30 PM

At this year’s gala, we’re thrilled to feature two of the many artists whose achievements and contributions will be shared in Beyond the Beat.


Alanis Morissette

Alanis Morissette’s deeply expressive music has earned vast critical praise and connected with millions of fans. Her success shattered the expectations of the male-dominated music industry, carving a new path forward. A dedicated charitable activist, Alanis has supported numerous causes ultimately earning her a Global Tolerance Award from the United Nation. We are thrilled to present a virtual interview with her at Gala 2023.

Susan Aglukark

Susan Aglukark

Juno award-winning Inuk artist Susan Aglukark’s journey as a singer-songwriter has led her to reflect on the importance of discovery – discovery of history, culture and self. We are honoured to host her at Gala 2023 to speak about her experiences and perform some of her beloved songs.

Honouring Moe Levy

It’s also our custom at each gala to honour someone who has helped advance human rights through their support.

From the moment he secured the land for Museum’s site, until the inauguration in 2014, Moe Levy did not give up until the vision was realized. We are pleased to honour him at Gala 2023 for his incredible contributions establishing the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.


Tickets sales will begin soon. Stay tuned!
