During the Fall (2019), we are holding a 3-part live storytelling series at Restore Human in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood. Traditionally səl̓ilwətaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsleil-Waututh), Skwxwú7mesh-ulh Temíx̱w (Squamish), S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō), Stz’uminus, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm territories. An extension of a previously NSG funded project (Expressions of Self), this series centers the themes: survival, resilience, and healing.
Starting with Expressions of Survival, we’ll dive into the ways we survive/ are surviving trauma. This will lay the foundation for the next session, Expression of Resilience, where we’ll share stories of strength, transformation, and perseverance. This ultimately leads to the final session, Expressions of Healing, where we’ll share how we manage trauma, rebuild ourselves, and continue a path of growth. Although the events build on one another, people are welcome to join us for individual events. For more, please join our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Expressions-of-Self-461283267778745/

We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it. And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.
