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.

Seven videos in total:
