Our Stories-co-creating workshops and new website

 

 

OurStoriesPosterAfter our final workshop (#9), I created a new website to host all the photos and videos for Our Stories Co-creating and Sharing project…I hope it to be an opening ending, so others can continue creating and sharing their works…Please check recitationroyale.com/en for all the information.

I want to thank all the participants for joining us to express and present their stories through poetic reflection and various arts. I hope that these artistic processes have created a cultural awareness in the wider society. Thank our partners: CPAC, HSK and CCNEWS. Thank Ontario Arts Council for the grant.
