Join us for an evening of stories, poetry, and art 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 and art.
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 in March here: https://www.facebook.com/events/143599106309425/
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 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.
Complimentary light snacks & tea served!
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)!
