A BANQUET OF STORIES: Sharing Migration Stories Through Food

Celebrate Strathcona’s multicultural past and present through storytelling and food. Pacific Canada Heritage Centre Museum of Migration Society hosts an afternoon of diverse communities sharing family dishes and the migration stories they hold. Yes, there will be food sampling!

In this “round-robin” style storytelling event, you will hear diverse migration stories inspired by family recipes, dishes, photographs and heirlooms related to the theme of food. Come hear and taste your way across the oceans, and share your own story of migration and settlement to this place called Canada.

A Banquet of Stories is part of Heart of the City Festival, with sponsorship of the City of Vancouver. Videographers from event sponsor UBC Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies will be on-hand to document storytelling, with the goal to produce a video similar to that of the inaugural 2015 event.
