You are invited to the theatre performance titled, “We are not the Other” on any of the following dates: Nov 11, 12 or 13, 2016.
The plays are rooted in a study conducted in Hamilton. They provide a ‘snap shot’ on the complex issues newcomers to Hamilton encounter—particularly women. The research was carried in partnership with the Immigrant Working Centre, Hamilton Community Legal Clinic, and the Emergency Support Committee for Refugees.
The play encompasses the woven experiences of 61 participants: (i) women immigrant to Hamilton, (ii) service providers, (iii) their adult or adolescent children, and (iv) their partners. Stories of struggles, trauma, resiliency and hope for the future are presented through various artistic modalities, included but not limited to poetry and singing.
