Based at Concordia University, the Life Stories of Montrealers Displaced by War, Genocide, and other Human Rights Violations (Montréal Life Stories), is a community-university research alliance which has involved a team of more than 150 people and 18 partner organizations.
The objective of this five-year long project has been to collect and disseminate the interviews of 500 Montrealers who have found a new home in Montreal.
To pay tribute to these interviews, we have organized the Montreal Life Stories Rencontres, which will take place at various locations throughout the city of Montreal during the month of March 2012. The Rencontres will include: an international academic conference, a press conference, exhibitions, a multimedia installation, round table discussions, various artistic displays and performances and workshops.
