Welcome to Staging Our Histories

Staging Our Histories explores the convergence of history, memory and performance. Bringing together performing artists of diverse traditions with members of academia and the general public, Staging Our Histories offers a space for engagement and dialogue regarding the ways we express our histories beyond the page.

The theme of our 2016 event was Unharvested Histories. Live performances took place on October 15th in Goderich, Ontario.
