Stories of resistance, resurgence, and resilience 2017

The media capsules on this page were recorded during our 2017 intergenerational activist storytelling workshops, held at Sadleir House on October 30th, November 6th, and December 7th 2017. We gathered gratefully for these three days on the territory of the Mississauga Anishinaabe, in the territory covered by the Williams Treaties. We say chi-miigwech to Elders Shirley Williams and Audrey Kewaquom-Caskanette for offering opening blessings throughout our gatherings. We were also well nourished by Food Not Bombs, Black Honey, and the generous offerings and teachings of participants. This year's workshops were shaped and co-led by a talented team of facilitators: Melissa Baldwin, Emma Langley, Heidi Burns, Ziysah von Bieberstein, Jenn Cole, Maddy Macnab, Mehrangiz Monsef, and Melissa Hunt. We are especially thankful to all of this year's storytellers and to the students in GWMST 4122H, for bringing care and brilliance to our gatherings, and for the thought that went into these media capsules. 

Stories of Resistance, Resurgence, and Resilience is a multi-year project, bringing community activists together across generations and movements to share and record diverse stories of activism in Nogojiwanong/ Peterborough. This year we partnered with the Kawartha World Issues CentreSee 2016's stories here, and stay tuned for stories to come!
