Reflecting on the multifold experience of immigration

Immigrantstory.ca’s fourth major exhibition takes place at the Markham Public Library’s Aaniin Branch between August 26 – October 27.

Stories contributed by award-winning writers accompany those penned by the website and exhibition’s creator, writer/designer Sholom Wargon.

The exhibit is a mosaic of immigration accounts from newcomers across the globe. Visit the Immigrant Story Exhibit at Aaniin Library to read the immigration stories, sign the guestbook, and reflect on the multifold experience of immigration.

Massive narrative panels and even larger thematic tableaux depict the immigrant journeys of dozens of individuals and families. The 38-by-54-inch story panels can be read easily from five feet away.

The entire collection is exquisitely printed and finished. Historical photographs have been restored in stunning detail.
