#NorthVanStories Living History

#NorthVanStories Living History video series explores the power of personal storytelling to foster resilience in our communities. We are living through this extraordinary time in isolation, physically separated from our loved ones and restricted from travelling across borders.

Through a series of short videos released over the coming months, we will use storytelling to create meaningful connections between individuals and communities throughout North Vancouver. We invite you to take a moment to listen and experience the power of personal storytelling. Join in the laughter and open your heart to the sorrow, because we are learning that we are all in this together.

#NorthVanStories Living History video series is a part of Mayor Linda Buchanan’s Healthiest Small City Social Resiliency Collective

Giselle Clarke-Trenaman shares her personal story about living through the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a story of love, loss and an appeal for perseverance.

When the pandemic began, Jackson Waller was finishing his last year of high school. Unsure of what the future had in store, he grabbed his camera and began capturing North Vancouver under lockdown.
