In-person Intercultural Photography Storytelling Visual arts Writing & literature

How did you come to live in Canada? "A Rightful Place" was created by the Common Weal arts organization as an effort to stimulate connection with and acceptance of newcomers amongst local communities. While tensions between locals and immigrants may arise for a variety of reasons, too often it is simply a lack of understanding and familiarity which gives rise to problematic stereotypes and misunderstanding between groups. Join us for an afternoon reception, where viewers are invited to share their Canadian Origin story. Stories can be shared in person or submitted in advance, and can be anonymous. This event will be live streamed on the Weyburn Arts Council's Facebook page. Current Covid protocols will be in place

Sun 26 Sep
2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

This event is free.
