Who is the organizer?
Hi, I'm Julia :) I am a Masters student with a passion for storytelling. Our stories demystify and humanize our experiences - important work in coming to see our differences as opportunities for learning. I believe storytelling is a transformative practice for tellers and receivers alike as we join each other in holding space for empathy, compassion, solace, validation, understanding, and healing.
These events are not related to my Masters studies in any way.
how are these events funded?
These events are funded by Neighborhood Small Grants issued by The Vancouver Foundation in collaboration with neighborhood houses. Granted in April 2017, 2018 & 2019.

What are these events about?
These events are about bringing people together in celebration of our differences, showcasing the complexity and diversity of our experiences, and soaking in the lessons therein.
