We have been developing our partnership since 2017. We are two civil-society organisations based in Verdun, Montreal, Suspicious Fish Literacy and Arts Program and Literacy Quebec, and researchers from McGill University from, the Social Equity and Diversity Education (SEDE) Office, students and faculty in the Schools of Architecture and Urban Planning, and the Desautels Faculty of Management. We are exploring the possibilities for developing an experimental university-community hub for social innovation and community engaged learning. The Southwest Storytelling Hub will be a space for community events, literacy programs, knowledge and skill exchange, job training and research.
