You are the curator for a new exhibition at the Italian-Canadian Cultural Centre which will feature family stories from members of the community. In preparation for the upcoming exhibition, you and your colleagues will collect family history and immigration stories from your family and then create a digital art piece which creatively represents one of these stories. In order to represent the story, you will use a combination of Italian and any other family languages. These art pieces will be displayed in an exhibition hall and you will take turns presenting your art piece to visitors. Invite your friends and family to come visit the museum and ask questions about the art in order to learn more about the experiences of other community members. In the end, you will write a short review of one of the art pieces you saw.
