Open Mic: Stories of People on the Move

*** UPDATE ***

Open Mic: Stories of People on the move was a great success! A number of community members from a wide variety of  backgrounds came to tell their stories of movement. The event also evolved into a round-table forum discussing immigration and settlement issues in the community.

Thanks to all who participated and helped to make this event possible, in particular the Guelph Public Library for hosting the event, the GWLIP Grassroots Committee and those who came to share their stories.

Hopefully we’ll see everyone (and some new faces) next year!
