Migration / Immigrant Stories

 

September 17 - November 1, 2009

Migration/ Immigrant Stories is a research project involving the gathering of stories of new and settled Richmond immigrants. Vancouver Island-based Russell will explore the first encounter and challenges of new Canadian beginnings. The creativity that often comes from having nothing and beginning again will be the focus of her drawings and paintings derived from a selection of narratives based on her research and discussion with new immigrants.
