Hidden Gems


Project Description

NOTE: Hidden Gems is currently suspended due to a lack of resources. If you would like to help us identify funding options or can help us offer this project as part of a McGill course, please contact anurag.dhir [at] mcgill.ca (subject: Hidden%20Gems)

Hidden Gems is an intergenerational project that aims to close the intergenerational gap through story-telling, oral history and play-writing. Our students are matched with a local elder in the Montreal community, whom they then interview. Based on these interviews and stories, students write, record, produce and broadcast a radio play on CKUT 90.3 FM. Hidden Gems is an opportunity for students to learn about issues facing older generations, to find value in personal stories and to understand and express themes capable of transcending generations.

Land Acknowledgment

Map of Montreal

McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’keha:ka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations. We recognize and respect the Kanien’keha:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which we meet today.* 

Recognizing the history of where you stand is important, and becoming increasingly common practice when hosting events and activities across Canada.

Here are a few tips to remember if you want to make a land acknowledgment before a class presentation, in a written document, or when hosting an event.
