UBC student finalist in SSHRC storytelling competition

School of Community and Regional Planning student Aftab Erfan has been included as one of the top 25 storytellers in a competition given by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). The Research for a Better Life: The Storytellers challenge asked scholarship holders to report on the findings of their research in story form. Erfan’s submission was a large mural that she co-created with members of the Gwa’sala-’Nakwaxda’xw First Nations.

In the next month, the 25 finalists will present their research stories in cities across Canada after which an overall winner will be chosen. For more information, click here.
