On May 11th, SCSC will be taking part in a four day community event called Cuisine ta Ville, which consists of art exhibits, dance performances, music, workshops and conferences all designed to build understanding around the diverse backgrounds of the refugees, immigrants and newcomers that make up the social fabric of the city.

In this special session of Cuisine ta Ville, SCSC and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Urban Spaces will convene a variety of experts, migrants and community members to discuss the crisis of forced migration in Northern Central America and the links to the forced migration we are seeing in Montreal. Speakers will discuss the mental health impacts of migration, from countries of origin to transit to destination, and the potential for cities to be critical agents in upholding the dignity and humanity of people forced to flee.
