Hidden Gems is an intergenerational project that aims to close the intergenerational gap through story-telling, oral history and play-writing. Our students are matched with a local elder in the Montreal community, whom they then interview. Based on these interviews and stories, students write, record, produce and broadcast a radio play on CKUT 90.3 FM. Hidden Gems is an opportunity for students to learn about issues facing older generations, to find value in personal stories and to understand and express themes capable of transcending generations.
