Richmond youth, seniors share personal migration stories

By Richmond News |

Over the past year, Richmond youth and seniors participated in an art project called Mosaic Firefly to share their personal stories and experiences on the topic of migration.

Participants engaged in discussions on multiculturalism, diversity, racism and discrimination through a series of workshops in theatre, storytelling and visual art beginning in October 2022.

The end product of the project is “Migration Stories Richmond Edition,” an hour-long guided play that the participants will present to the public during a gathering on Oct. 15 from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Richmond Cultural Centre Performance Hall.

“Seeing them — the two different generations — connecting and how they have learned from each other’s experiences and stories was an extremely enriching experience for me,” said Nikhat Qureshi, who coordinated the project with Richmond Multicultural Community Services.
