Steven High is a professor at Concordia University and the co-founder of the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling. He led a six year project on the life stories of Montrealers who were displaced by large-scale violence in their homelands (www.lifestoriesmontreal.ca). The project integrated these stories into radio programming, online digital stories, theatrical performances, educational modules, and museum exhibitions.
The We Are Here/Nous Sommes Ici exhibition at the Centre d'histoire de Montreal is open to visitors until April 2013. Nearly 400 Montreal metro cars were also equipped with audio portraits where transit users could listen to individual stories.
