THE STORY EXCHANGE: Saturday, March 12, 2011 1-3pm

Welcome to: THE STORY EXCHANGE on Saturday, March 12, 2011 1-3 pm

The Story Exchange is an informal story circle where people gather to discuss memories and experiences relating to train travel in Canada, perception of space and identity. I will begin by reading excerpts from my blog (as I traveled across Canada via rail) and other excerpts from 'Trains of Recollection: Drawn from 50 Years of Railway Service ' by D.B Hanna. Please feel free to bring your own photographs and/or memorabilia from past travels, even if it is from your morning run to get milk!) My hope is this space will encourage people to tell their stories, and open up into a dialogue that calls attention to our daily movements; bringing the community together.

The Story Exchange is concurrent with the photo-media exhibition: Negotiating Spaces: Visual Recollections of Train travel in Canada by Lindsey Bond, presented by Harcourt House. Bring your Grandpa or daughter or that friendly person at your bus stop. All ages welcome. I will also be setting up a blog for an on-line discussion after the event. Look back to find out more information!
