Storytelling brings life to collective beliefs, ideas, knowledge and values; it connects people, inspiring them to recall aspects of their history and to see different perspectives. Our stories provide an intangible link to the past which continues to shape our communities today. Toronto is a city with many stories – capturing the complete story of this city is an exciting challenge. In this discussion we hope to explore how the narrative of Toronto’s story changes when different voices add their stories. How can we use different understandings to broaden our interpretation of this city to tell a richer, more complex story? How can we bring multiple stories from communities together in a way that invites everyone to learn? Moderator: Cheryl Thompson Panelists: Maggie Hutcheson, John Lorinc
