Storied Lives: Shifting Perspectives on Poverty is a joint research project by the Guelph and Wellington Task Force for Poverty Elimination, the University of Guelph’s Community Engaged Scholarship Institute, and Live Work Well Research Centre. The project aims to encourage members of the public to examine their assumptions about the causes of poverty by amplifying the voices of those experiencing poverty.

Using composite stories that highlight lived expertise and commentary from experts who work in fields related to poverty reduction, this podcast series shines a spotlight on structural factors that shape poverty in Ontario and beyond. The use of audio allows for a grounded and intimate approach to mobilizing knowledge about the intersectional experience of poverty.

Be the first to listen to these podcasts and join a panel discussion with key informants of this research.

  • Doors open at 6:30 p.m., Panel Discussion at 7 p.m., Podcast Listening at 8 p.m., with a social hour to follow at 8:30 p.m.
