VIDEOS: Telling Our Own Stories

How can alternative media be used to address stereotypes and promote a fuller understanding of the contributions of ethno-cultural communities in Canadian media? The United Nations Association in Canada’s (UNA-Canada) Multimedia & Multiculturalism (M&M) Initiative presented a discussion to explore efforts to create alternative narratives of lives and experiences. Over 80 people attended the event for an evening of learning and discussion from these fabulous Canadian women.
