Our Roots is a story-gathering initiative with a focus on the Grandview-Woodlands neighbourhood of Vancouver. Thirty-six participants shared their thoughts and experiences through interviews conducted between September 2011 and June 2012.
They talked about their perceptions of the community, how connections are made among people, and how strengthened understanding could be built between First nations and immigrant communities.
This book portrays a vibrant and unique community through the eyes of some individuals and their stories reflect the diversity and richness of the Granview-Woodlands neighbourhood.
Our Roots is part of the Vancouver Dialogues Project, and is supported as a civic project in celebration of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary and year as a Cultural Capital of Canada. Download Our Roots Book
