About Block by Block

Block by Block is a participatory, multimedia project that engages diverse youth and newcomers in the collection and interpretation of oral histories of newcomer settlement. By training young people to interview community members about their lived experiences, the project preserves and animates stories of migration, settlement, civic life and resilience in Canadian immigrant neighbourhoods. From 2019-2021, Block by Block is in four Toronto neighbourhoods: Agincourt, Parkdale, Regent Park, and Victoria Park.
