MAPPING MEMORIES, 2006-2012

MappingMemories_site

Mapping Memories was a four-year SSHRC research-creation project involving over 100 refugee youth from Montreal and Toronto. The team led 10 workshops to train youth in video, audio, digital images, and digital cartography to document their stories of migration and separation. The project resulted in 18 first person short films developed by participants, one documentary database Korsakow project, and six short films documenting our process. The films have been screened in festivals, conferences and were the centerpiece of a 30-school tour throughout Montreal that reached thousands of students. An original self-published 160-page publication, containing chapters written by Liz Miller, Michele Luchs and Gracia Jalea accompany the DVD. The project was closely affiliated with the oral history project, Life Stories of Montrealers Displaced by War  mappingmemories.ca
