Although it has been a month since the screening of “Inside Hana’s Suitcase” for the Hamilton and Halton communities, her story continues on with students at the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board: http://bit.ly.diysjp/
Each school in the Hamilton and Halton community received a suitcase. In this suitcase, copies of the book “Hana’s Suitcase” ( in different languages), drawings made by Hana, and copies of the curriculum guide were includes to continue the journey.
The movie, the suitcase and the presence of George Brady, Lara Brady and Fumiko Ishioka begin a very important conversation in our community.
In a way, they ask a simple question:
- What’s in your suitcase?
- What are your core values?
- What do you deem precious in your life?
It is our hope that this project will be part of a larger, community-wide conversation that will lead to real action to help make Hamilton a stonger, more cohesive communtiy.
