PCHP to curate photographic exhibit on 60th anniversary of Portuguese immigration to Canada

The Portuguese Canadian History Project was invited by the Consul of Portugal in Toronto to curate a photographic exhibit on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Portuguese immigration to Canada, commemorated in 2013, and integrated in the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival. The exhibit will be held at Toronto’s City Hall on May 9-17 of 2013, and will focus on the experiences of Portuguese immigrants in that city. Over the next four months we will seek new archival donations in the community, aiming to preserve a larger and more representative sample of records reflecting the experiences of Portuguese immigrants and their descendants in Canada, and hopefully find interesting materials to figure in our exhibit.
