Stories of Ours is a Toronto-based project that aims to deepen community, invite solidarity, and challenge dominant narratives through stories and art. Our vision is to be a bridge between humans through the power of personal narrative.

Hi friends! I'm the Founder of Stories of Ours - a Toronto-based project that uses storytelling and art to challenge dominant narratives. In the spaces we create, we're interested in resistance, resilience, and learning. We interrogate our histories, our relationships, our allyship - and focus on centering the voices of folks often left to the margins. 

We are a platform for people to share personal narratives that humanize otherwise daunting structures like racism or sexism, and foster empathy to humanize divergent experiences.

The funds from this campaign will be used to grow and sustain our work. For the past two years, we've operated out-of-pocket to provide free events and workshops to Toronto's residents and community organizations. 

Specifically, we are looking to:

- compensate the artists and folks we hire to support documentation and logistics (and anyone else we may work with)

- continue hosting free events and workshops with food, and providing resources for transit, childcare, transcription, and other related costs 

We know how impactful our work has been so far and your support can help take it even further!
