Scadding Court Community Centre, in partnership with Regent Park Focus, facilitated a series of workshops as part of the Canadian Ministry of Heritage funded Inter-Action project titled: Our Canadian Story. Our Canadian Story is a program that recruited 15 youth who, over the course of the program, attended workshops and retreats discussing themes of identity, inclusion, and cultural understanding. These workshops cultivated discussion and created critical thought around their own identity and living in Canada. With the partnership and resources of Regent Park Focus, these discussions were workshopped and turned into digital stories.
