Description

The Fifth Annual Journeys of Migration Event will be held on Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 3:00 PM


Admission is free but registration is required


We are not the others.
We are just like you.


We are pleased to announce that this year’s Journeys of Migration event will feature a theatrical production, We Are Not the Others. This play was created by Dr. Mirna Carranza from the McMaster School of Social Work, and Izad Etemadi, an award-winning Toronto-based actor and playwright. It is based on the findings of a two-year research project examining immigrant women’s experiences, and was first presented at the Hamilton Fringe Festival in July 2017.

This production humanizes the stories we read and hear about in the media, and brings us into the world of immigrant women. Using music, poetry and the real words of these women, We Are Not the Others brings you the struggles, pain, resiliency and hopes of immigrants everywhere.

Following the production, Mirna Carranza and Izad Etemadi, as well as the actresses, will be available to answer questions about the research on which the play was based, the development of the production, and the experience of producing it.



Date: Thursday, November 9, 2017

Time: 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (Refreshments at 2:30 PM and a reception at 5:00 PM)

Location: UCC McKellar (Rm 290), Western University

Tickets: Attendance is free but registration is required

The Event is presented by the Western Centre for Research on Migration and Ethnic Relations, Collège Boréal, the London & Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership, the London Cross Cultural Learner Centre, the South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre, and Pillar Nonprofit Network.
