In today’s political climate, empathy and understanding are paramount to building a safe and welcoming community for those new to Canada. Immigrant and refugee seniors offer profound insight into the complexity of journeying to a better life, and provide a unique opportunity for newcomer youth to connect to seniors who share experiences of displacement and finding home in a foreign country.
Reel Youth and Kiwassa Neighbourhood House have teamed up for a film program designed to showcase the unique stories of newcomers to Canada, while fostering intergenerational relationships between immigrant and refugee youth and seniors.
The Celebrating Journeys Immigrant & Refugee Inter-generational Stories Project is a documentary filmmaking workshop that brought young and senior new Canadians together in a creative collaboration to produce ten short films.
