Through StoryNet, QAHN is exploring, gathering and presenting the stories of Quebec's English-speaking communities and, in this way, is contributing to a strengthening of the arts, culture and heritage of these communities.
This initiative is bringing together partners such as the Quebec Writer's Federation (QWF), the National Film Board (NFB) and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-Radio (CBC-Radio) to develop creative non-fiction, broadcast radio and documentary storytelling by English-speaking Quebec creators. In collaboration with these and other partners, QAHN is contributing to the cultural development of official minority language communities in which nearly a million Canadians live.
StoryNet is focusing on people, experiences, memories and events in a range of English-language voices, and adheres to the highest technical and editorial standards. Its approach is to foster creation of strong original narratives from Quebec's minority English-speaking communities in three distinct media forms: creative non-fiction writing; broadcast radio; and documentary storytelling.
