Council of Agencies Serving South Asians Presents Brown Canada: a two year project which seeks to document South Asian history in Canada over the 20th century - our milestones, struggles, pain, growth, interconnections and stories.
Over the course of two years, this project will build a comprehensive and participatory website that memorializes the Komagata Maru incident, with information, analysis, links to present-day circumstances, interviews and creative projects. The website will also create space to explore the diversity and complexity of South Asian history more broadly, containing information about different decades, different social and historical themes/issues important to South Asians, and the specifics of diverse South Asian communities.
Keep checking back to this page as we countdown to launch this exciting website! In the meantime we will keep updating this page with news, opportunities, and information related to the project.
Throughout the project we hope to reach out to a wide range of groups and individuals interested or doing work relevant to South Asians and social justice. One of our goals is to create space for dialogue and solidarity not only across different South Asian communities, but with Indigenous communities, different communities of colour and social justice advocates.
We are also working on setting up a youth-led play, creative and digital storytelling workshops, creation of a dvd and more.
This project is for activists, scholars, artists, researchers, writers, community organizers, educators and general enthusiasts to build upon together.
