Our country’s defining attributes are its multiculturalism and inclusivity. Yet, we tend to tell Canadian history through the eyes of the white settler. For Doors Open 2016, Diaspora Dialogues has invited some of city’s finest writers, spoken word artists, and playwrights to explore a moment or figure from Canadian history reimagined through a more diverse and inclusive lens.

Saturday May 28, 2016, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sunday May 29, 2016, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Old City Hall, Court Room 121
60 Queen Street West


Hosted by: Dianah Smith, writer, teacher, and arts educator.

Readings are happening throughout the entire weekend so be sure to stop by Old City Hall between taking in other historical sites at Doors Open.
