VIU Global Citizens Week Panel
February 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Something to Write Home About:
Sharing Stories of Here, There, and Everywhere
VIU Nanaimo Campus
Join the CREW 431 Portal magazine class, and 4 of its contributors to the 2023 issue, for a panel discussion about the places we call home—Nepal, Chile, Brazil, India—and the ways in which those formative memories and cultures inform our essays, fiction, poems, and scripts. These works introduce readers to parts of the world delicately nuanced through personal introduction and contrast to, and commonalities with, the Canada we define through experiences both unique and universal.
VIU’s annual week-long event takes place from February 6-10 this year. For more information including the complete 2023 schedule of events, check out the Global Citizens Week page.
