Riverdale’s Essential Pathways to Employment (EPE) program participants go on a virtual trip to the museum.
On October 13th, 2020, the women in Riverdale’s EPE program were led through a captivating virtual tour of Olga Stefatu’s Chrysalis exhibition at the Aga Khan Museum. This exhibition documents migrant women through bright and empowering portraits. Participants viewed Stefatu’s photographs online and Marika Sardar, curator at the Aga Khan, read the accompanying stories from the women who were photographed. This was an incredible opportunity for the women in our EPE program, many of whom are refugees and immigrants themselves, to connect with each other and see themselves reflected in the artwork of a major museum. Based on the thoughtful and evocative questions and comments they contributed during the Q&A, it’s clear that this event was successful in deeply engaging and moving participants.
