Thank you to all those who came out to Passages Canada’s inaugural Stories We Hold event in Fredericton to share your stories of cultural heritage and identity. 

The room at the Intercultural Centre was brimming with stories and objects, among them letters, books, old photographs, toys and even a 20 peso banknote from the Philippines! We are now working through all the audio, images and written accounts that were captured by our digitization volunteers. In the coming months, the stories will be added to the Passages Canada Story Archive and shared across our social media channels.

You may also want to check out the media coverage of the event over at Global News and CBC (skip to 5:00 min mark).

Here are a few visual highlights. To see more, check out the full blog post over at the Historica Canada blog.
