‘Storytelling Our Lives’ Returns!

Posted by admin on May 29th, 2009

If you missed this exciting production last year, don`t make the mistake again!

Saturday May 30th, 7:30 pm. FREE! at Gallery Gachet 88 East Cordova St (just West of Main)

In September 2008, as part of a 1 year workshop collaboration between No One Is Illegal and neworldtheatre, ‘Storytelling Our Lives` was produced and involved young people of colour sharing their personal stories of immigration and displacement. It is coming back this week in a (slightly smaller) production hosted by Salaam Vancouver, Rainbow Refugee Committee, and Gallery Gachet. The production includes Salaam Vancouver and Rainbow Refugee Committee members sharing their personal stories.

Background on the project: Through this project No One is Illegal and neworldtheatre hope to jointly contribute to bridging the gap between art and activism by bringing into focus the individual faces and unique stories of those who have gone through the migration process. This project draws upon the deeply rooted and central role of culture, creative expression, and storytelling as key components of resistance movements by providing a connection between personal narratives and global understandings.
