Presented by: Ray-Cam Community Association
With an emphasis on the Ray-Cam community, this project will engage youth, adults, and seniors in the neighbourhood. To enhance local connection and understanding among community members and the city at large, the Squeak! Community Stories Project will include support from a writing coach to facilitate reflections and insights from the members across diverse ethnicities and cultures.
This project will include creating a website that could use podcasts, radio, graphics, and other media formats of storytelling to document and enhance stories from the participants (written works, audio dramas, monologues, overheard conversations, and interviews across a wide variety of genres.) The purpose is to find and share commonalities, strengthen personal connections, and broaden awareness beyond the immediate community. A story archive will amplify, present, and preserve the muted or silenced narratives surrounding us to facilitate inclusion so that residents can feel that they belong and their voices matter. https://www.squeakdtes.org/
