Join us for an evening of true, personal stories and poetry shared by people of different ages, backgrounds and identities.
DOORS @ 7pm, STORIES @ 7:30pm
Stories of Ours is a project that aims to deepen community, invite solidarity and challenge dominant narratives through intentional acts of storytelling.
Big thanks to our partners at Centre for Social Innovation for providing us with this space to convene, and Regent Park Focus Youth Media Arts Centre, for working with us to document our stories for the world to see!
LINEUP: to be announced on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1503665676369573
FINGER FOODS sponsored by Abeda's Kitchen (https://www.facebook.com/AbedasKitchen/)
Please feel free to bring snacks to add to the community table. :)
Stories of Ours aims to go beyond cross-cultural dialogue and create a place were we can lean into, support, and grow a culture of pluralism and solidarity. We create bridges between humans through the power of story to bring challenging conversations to the fore and tackle the systems of oppression that inform our daily lived lives.
How? By complicating the narrative with different voices as much as we can.
This is a free/by donation event taking place on the 3rd floor of the Daniels Spectrum building in Regent Park where the Centre for Social Innovation has a home. Everyone is welcome. You can get here on the College or Dundas Streetcars - just get off at Sackville - or the 65 Parliament bus - just walk a bit east from Dundas.
There is $5 underground parking, accessible from Dundas. It's also a lovely bike ride (many bike racks in the front and back of the building)!
This event takes place in a physically accessible space with zero tolerance for discrimination or disrespect. Unfortunately we will not have ASL interpretation available but please get in touch with any accessibility requests and we will do our best to accommodate - erinkangster [at] gmail [dot] com
Complimentary light snacks & tea served!
