All aboard! Three Carleton Master of Journalism students will be taking the train across Canada to speak with Canadians this summer.
Karissa Gall, Maureen McEwan and Maggie Parkhill are working with Challenge for Change, a not-for-profit media organization that records conversations between Canadians.
Challenge for Change is partnering with the National Film Board and Via Rail to send interns across the country on the train. Gall, McEwan and Parkhill will record conversations between family, friends and strangers to capture what Canadians are talking about at this moment in history. The conversations will then be turned into a national audio project.
“I’ve lived here most of my life, but I’ve never really explored Canada,” Parkhill says. “I’m excited to see the mountains and to talk to people I would never have otherwise met.”
Challenge for Change hopes that by listening to conversations between Canadians with diverse backgrounds and experiences, listeners will develop a deeper understanding of their country and the people in it.
