Newcomer stories – read, write, watch

Putting together an email for someone, I searched my archives, feeds, emails and brain to remember sites and projects that seek or sought to capture newcomer stories, especially those that focused on newcomers’ own words and insights.

Check out this vid about the TEDxToronto Salon series that took place at Scadding Court Community Centre, focus: The Immigrant

There are a number of other sites and even shows on Rogers TV in Toronto right now that may make sense to connect to or explore. In some cases, the sites/publications are looking for submissions.

Some examples, in no particular order:
