Canada in 150 Seconds: 150-second Videos

During 2017 we are engaging 150 diverse Montrealers in telling stories about Canada in a 150-second video to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Foundation of Greater Montreal awarded a 15,000 grant for this project.

Coordinator Eric Craven is working with several community partners including Saint Columba House, James Lyng High School, Trafalgar School for Girls, Concordia University, and Ageing + Communication + Technologies (ACT), supporting a variety of video options.

We are bringing together the video-makers for three celebratory public showcase events. On the 150th day of the year we’re hosting a multi-media reception involving participants in another project presenting 150-word literary creations.
