Our Canada, Our Story

Our Canada, Our Story

Join the Ethno-Cultural Council of Calgary for an innovative evening of community theatre in a performance that depicts Canada’s history, beginning with our indigenous roots and culminating in our 150th birthday. This project will bring to life Canada’s heritage and diverse history from the experiences of the First Peoples of the land and those who came after. It weaves together the narratives of our many communities – stories of existence, colonization, immigration, survival, healing, and resilience. While our communities faced exclusion and racism, they persevered and thrived to help shape what we celebrate today as Canada. Today, the children of our communities share the common goal of a more welcoming and equitable society. These stories and more are told through a fusion of traditional and contemporary art and cultural forms.
