For the Weary - SONICA Exibit in theMUSEUM

Jan 31 2021

Mary Neil For the WearyThe Social Development Centre of Waterloo Region produced Life Stories of Displacement & Homes for All, a series of podcasts where local residents who live on low incomes and have experienced marginalization in its many forms, including housing, spoke about their stories. Mary Neil, a community musician, listened to them all and she got angry: "I got angry at how the system is failing. I got angry at how people could be treated like dirt. I got angry about unfair stereotypes and unjust circumstances." And she wrote the song "For the Weary" that is now part of the SONICA exhibit at theMUSEUM - you have to listen and see. More at Unsheltered Testimonies page.You will have a chance to watch the musical video edited by Heather Majaury, and posters highlighting testimonies from A Better Tent City, the Unsheltered Campaign, and a poem from your next door neighbour Rick Weber.
