Lifescapes

02:30 PM | Online

What are your stories?

Lifescapes is a memoir writing program for people with life experience, designed to help you think and write about the legacy you want to leave. We meet regularly throughout the fall, winter, and spring for writing guidance and support, then publish an annual anthology of short memoirs in the summer.

This fall we’ll meet virtually, using Zoom for presentations and group discussion, then transition back to meeting at the Main Library as it becomes safer (and in accordance with all relevant guidelines).

Contact Robin at rharding@brantfordlibrary.ca to register or for more information.

Check out the Lifescapes webpage for resources, past anthologies, and to stay current on program events.

You can watch our Lifescapes videos on our YouTube channel.

Nova Vita Domestic Violence Prevention Services and the Brantford Public Library are collaborating to start a new speaker series, Unity in Diversity: Human Library Series.

Throughout this biweekly series community members will share their diverse experiences through stories and conversations. When we share experiences and stories we spark a connection, we learn about each other’s traditions, practices, and historical truths, and we unlearn false and harmful narratives. Stories convey meaning and purpose that help us understand ourselves and our world. Through stories, we share passions, fears, sadness, hardships, and joys, and we find common ground with other people to connect and communicate.

Come learn about the history of Canada and Brantford, diverse cultures that shape our community, and the experiences and challenges of our community members. This series will take place through Zoom webinars on a biweekly basis from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Registration is required.

This is a FREE event but you must register for each event of the series individually. After you register, you will receive Zoom information the day of the event.​

*This project has been supported in part by Women and Gender Equality.
