Heritage Toronto Community Award

HerstoriesCafe is most grateful for receiving a Heritage Toronto Community Award for our outreach work in the city of Toronto. We received this recognition at the Heritage Toronto awards ceremony at Koerner Hall, on October 9th, 2012.

What the jury said about HerstoriesCafe:

“HerstoriesCafe was founded to bring together people interested in local women’s history through free cafe talks generally held at a location related to the evening’s topic. Topics explored include the history of women’s teacher unions and the experience of Black women in 19th century Toronto. City-wide in its reach, HerstoriesCafe seeks to create connections between all those who ‘do’ history: historians, archivists, museum practitioners, teachers, students, and history enthusiasts.

“The jury recognized HerstoriesCafe for its contemporary and innovative approach to local history programming. The jury also noted that the group has brought to light a wide diversity of perspectives on local history, as well as otherwise untold stories in their own contexts.”

Thank you to all of our followers. See you at the next HerstoriesCafe!
