What do conversations spark?
Every community faces different challenges and we are collaborating with some of them as they work toward solutions.
We visited some communities in Northern Manitoba this summer, recorders in hand.
There’s a certain resiliency needed to live in the north. From fires to floods to frequent evacuations, these communities are populated by fighters.
Here, the train is a lifeline and when it doesn’t come, people scramble for the basics of life while reflecting on lost ways and their culture.
Edmonton and Calgary
Challenge for Change stepped off the train to work with two tireless organizations that are making a difference in their communities: Ribbon Rouge and Gradual Rising of Women (G.R.O.W.).
They use personal stories and conversation to build connections, empower each other and strengthen relationships.
We also listened in on some everyday chats that fill a barber shop.
Youth In Care
Vancouver area, BC
We’re listening to kids and their families who are connected to the child welfare system. They’re tired of narratives that depict them as passive victims or tragic heroes.
The system may be broken but they most certainly are not.
