On March 23-24, 2018, HLTD50 students in “Toronto’s Stories of Health and Illness” collaborated with the University of Guelph’s Project Re*Vision REDLAB, a state-of-the-art mobile media lab, to create seminar students’ final projects. By the end of the two-day workshop, 15 original digital stories were created and screened; topics included student mental health and illness, first- and second-generation immigrant health access, Islamophobia, death and mourning, aging and older age, caregiving and care practices.


Special thanks to the Project Re*Vision team: Dr Carla RiceKavya YoganathanAndrea LamarreErin Sproule, Ingrid Mundel and Hannah Fowlie for their expert facilitation, and to the UTSC Library for their generous provision of the MakerSpace for the duration of the workshop. And extra-special thanks to the UTSC’s Office of the Vice-Principal Academic & Dean, whose generous Experiential Education Funding grant made this memorable event possible. Thanks also to UTSC Communications’s student interns for writing about us here.
