Myseum Intersections 2021: Here and There: Storytelling Event
April 25, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
A storytelling event to hear about the history of Care Work in Canada and listen to personal stories of migrant Care Workers.
In 2019, Kwentong Bayan Collective and Caregiver Connections Education and Support Organization (CCESO) premiered their collaborative storytelling project, Re-imagining Stories of Care Work at Myseum Intersections. The event received an overwhelmingly positive response from the community.
For Myseum Intersections 2021, they will reunite and offer a new collaborative project called Here and There which is a prerecorded audio/visual/storytelling piece that will be live streamed on YouTube.
Join us to learn about the experiences of Migrant Care Workers who will share their stories.
These stories have been developed with the support of theatre artist, Karen Ancheta and the Kwentong Bayan Collective have responded with an audio/visual installation.
As a nature of their work, Migrant Workers already know how to socially distance – divide mind, body, heart, and spirit – when they are separated from their loved ones for years to work abroad. Through the art of community storytelling, we’ll explore the rhythms of this dual life; how love transcends time and space; and what we can all learn from this time of lockdown and revolution.
