St. John's Days: A Taste of HOME

Sunday, June 23, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
City Hall, Foran/Greene Room

Join us for a taste of St. John’s! We’ll treat you to some Purity Jam Jams and a screening of HOME: Stories of Newcomers to Newfoundland and Labrador. 

Produced by the Association for New Canadians in collaboration with filmmakers Conor McCann and Rodrigo Iniguez, HOME presents familiar local images, scenes, and recognizable landmarks alongside the ever-changing cultural landscape of modern-day Newfoundland and Labrador. This 30-minute documentary features firsthand accounts of arrival, integration, and settlement in St. John’s, Gander, Corner Brook, and Labrador City. Interviewees discuss the opportunities and challenges of adapting to life in the province from the perspectives of student, parent, worker, professional, refugee, and new Canadian.

This event will include a screening of the film, a panel discussion and opportunity to sample a locally made treat.
