Urban & Inner-City Studies Speakers Series

Come out to see a project presented by the UIC speaker series - held at 519 Selkirk at Urban Circle Training Centre (New Urban and Inner-City Studies off-campus location) on February 16, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm (light lunch will be provided).

The Urban and Inner-City Studies Speakers Series engages faculty, students, community organizations and community members in discussion about current issues.

This event will include:
an interactive discussion period with audience members after presentation

Through digital stories, short videos approximately 3-5 minutes in length, we will explore the intergenerational effects on professional First Nations women in Winnipeg whose mothers attended residential school. 

The presenters will be showing and discussing their own digital stories, produced as part of a research project by the Prairie Women’s Health Centre of Excellence.

pê-âcimohk is a Plains Cree word that means “come and witness/hear a story”.
