Transforming Stories, Driving Change

Thanks to the generous support of the Hambro Fund of the Hamilton Community Foundation, the Transforming Stories, Driving Change research group will be presenting two plays developed with community participants at Creating Community-Campus Partnerships: An Idea Exchange, organized by McMaster’s Office of Community Engagement:

Monday June 12 2017 2:00 to 7:00

opening address at 3:00 and performances from 3:15 to 4:45


David Braley Health Sciences Centre, McMaster University

100 Main Street West

Hamilton ON  L8P 1H6

These performances were developed as part of a pilot project to explore the use of community-engaged theatre as a way of exploring and intervening in the narratives that circulate about life in Hamilton. A key aim of the Transforming Stories, Driving Change project is to foreground narratives from groups whose voices are often marginalized, in order to expose and counter the powerful but informal social and cultural norms that devalue the contributions of some social groups in public debate.

NB  Registration for this event is almost full.  If you are interested in attending, please considering registering by June 5th at
