Join us for the opening of The Quiet Immigrant Project! Our Opening Day includes the full launch of our multimedia legacy exhibit and the InHERitance Art Exhibit, where attendees will have the opportunity to walk through and participate in both the exhibit and gallery. Filled with interactive and hands-on stations, you will find opportunity for personal artistic expression through participation. At the exhibit launch, you will find yourself immersed in culture and reminiscent of experience by way of symbolic and touching music, presented in both English and Italian. Finally, a beautiful performance – a commissioned theatre piece – that explores and represents the stories of The Quiet Immigrant. A promising afternoon with food and drink, and a room filled with love, laughter, and stories to share.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
An homage to the brave Italian women who immigrated to Canada after WW2 and through sheer strength of character wove their way into the fabric of society. Their stories of strength, courage, determination, and sacrifice are sure to move, amuse, and captivate. The Quiet Immigrant Project is a multifaceted, multimedia, and multilayered legacy exhibit. #femmineforti
