National storytelling initiative Passages Canada will visit the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Regina Campus to offer their signature workshop series, The Stories We Hold. The workshops will provide instruction on how to tell stories in a compelling way. Students from the Regina campus LINC school will participate in the workshops over a three day-period. Participants are asked to bring an object that tells a story of their immigration, heritage, or family’s ancestry, such as a ticket stub, a toy, or a photograph. Local volunteers will help record these objects and stories for the Passages Canada online Story Archive.

The event will include a presentation from film producer and Passages Canada speaker Ranjan Thakre about the value of cross-cultural communication.

Who:               Keynote speaker Ranjan Thakre
