September 24, 3 PM to 6 PM in Ada Slaight Hall

Block by Block is a participatory, multimedia project. Led by young fellows, Block by Block seeks to engage the public in a dialogue around the impact local communities have in the lives of newcomers. Through this exchange of personal stories, reflections, testimonies and resources we hope to create a better understanding of the role neighbourhoods play in fostering a more inclusive society.
Quartier par Quartier est un projet multimédia participatif. Mené par des jeunes, Quartier par Quartier cherche à engager le public dans un dialogue sur l’impact des communautés locales dans la vie des nouveaux arrivants. À travers ces échanges de récits personnels, de réflexions, de témoignages et de ressources, nous espérons mieux comprendre le rôle que les quartiers peuvent avoir dans l’établissement d’une société plus inclusive.
