Invisible Wounds: Stories of Survivorship

When and Where

Tuesday, September 13, 2022 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Innis Town Hall Theatre

2 Sussex Ave, Toronto, M5S 1J5


Homicide-related death has a devastating impact on the mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing of family members, friends, and communities who must face the daunting challenge of learning to cope with the murder of their family members and friends. Experiencing the murder of a loved one leaves survivors with invisible “wounds”, injuries not often visible and comprehensible to the untrained eye.

Funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) in collaboration with the Story Centre and key community-based organizations, The Centre for Research & Innovation for Black Survivors of Homicide Victims (The CRIB) lead focus groups and engaged with African, Caribbean, and Black (ACB) survivors of homicide victims in digital storytelling to understand the impact of murder on the wellbeing, coping strategies and unmet needs of ACB Canadian survivors of homicide victims in Toronto.

Join us to view their stories of survivorship and hear directly from storytellers about the impact, consequences and culturally responsive services that are necessary to help them not just survive unthinkable tragedy but perhaps thrive thereafter it.

This is a free event. Registration is required.
