Weaving Tradition

Why is it so important to hold on to traditional culture? Follow the stories of these 12 Torontonians and discover how they have embraced life in a new city while still celebrating where they come from. Whether proudly displayed at home or worn around town and at traditional festivities, their objects weave together the histories of multiple generations, reminding them of their past and helping preserve their heritage into the future.
