Date: Stories will be collected July 1 to September 5 and a public reading event will be held in early Fall 2011
Location: Grandview Woodland neighbourhood
Write a story of a memorable event or experience from your time as a resident of Grandview Woodland. Stories can span the decades from the present to as far back as contributors can recall. 125 of these stories will be collected in a single publication as a legacy project with a permanent installation in the community. Stories will be collected from as diverse a pool of community voices as possible (aboriginal, youth, immigrant, LGBTQ2S, vulnerable populations etc.). 25 of the stories will be shared with the public at an outdoor event in Grandview Woodland Park in the fall 2011. Deadline for story submissions is September 5th, 2011.
With support from the City of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary Grants Program and the participation of the Government of Canada.
