Every local has a story to tell that is worth listening to.
With this gallery exhibition, Claudia Aceituno and Victor Saavedra aim to create a legacy for future generations through photography, video and storytelling - leaving a record of the people who make this place their home.
In the Bow Valley, there are people from over 60 countries representing many religions, cultures, and ethnicities. One of the recurring topics of conversation locally is how to obtain Permanent Residence status in Canada and how to be able to live in this beautiful part of the planet. Every local has a story to tell that is worth listening to, especially when you understand the challenges people have overcome to live here.
