The Co-Created Story Project is a unique participatory initiative undertaken by Options Community Services (OCS) and the UBC Centre for Migration Studies. Its main goal is to support staff in collaborating with their clients in a safe and supported way so that clients can share their stories. In this presentation, project leads Andrea Solnes and Diana Jeffries will highlight the key learnings and outcomes of the project undertaken with 8 Immigrant Services staff and their clients at OCS. They will also share the toolkit generated as part of this project.


Andrea Solnes and Diana Jeffries work under FLOW Society for Newcomers, a non-profit dedicated to prioritizing wellness and collective learning. They have extensive experience in the settlement, education and community service sectors, and create & curate learning experiences and resources that focus on well-being, trauma-informed practices, language learning and decolonization strategies for the settlement sector, and arts-based approaches to learning and story-sharing.
