A multi-media museum on wheels has rolled its way into Saskatchewan.

The 53-foot, custom mobile exhibit is called Together: An exhibition on global development.

Through photos, film and audio, the bus will help bring stories of global change to life. It features the work of 21 Canadian organizations.

"The goal of the exhibit is to increase our Canadians' awareness about the importance of the global issues and also we're actually trying to inspire the audience to be more active agents of change," said Francois Grenier with Aga Khan Foundation Canada.

He said the bus is designed to spark conversations about the role Canadians can play in reducing global poverty. 

"We are also trying to network with people from around Canada, you know, to hear what they have to say," he added.

The bus will be in Regina on Sunday at the Queen City Ex from 3 p.m. until 10 p.m. CST.

It will be at the Saskatoon Ex on Tuesday.
