The MEM is participating in the annual Jane’s Walk with a guided walking tour in the Milton Park neighbourhood. It’s a chance to get to know this area better, strolling through its streets, squares, and parks and hearing the stories of the people who live there. An active way of discovering the city!

Dans le cadre du Festival d’histoire de Montréal, le MEM organise un parcours commenté dans le quartier Milton Parc. En marchant dans le secteur, vous aurez la chance de rencontrer un résident, qui vous racontera sa vie dans Milton Parc. Vous entrerez ainsi en contact avec une partie de l’histoire de la métropole.

Citizen bikes

The MEM outreach team goes into different city boroughs on bicycles to meet Montrealers. On these occasions, our “citizen bikes” are transformed into activity hubs and recording studios, gathering feedback from residents on the things they love best in their neighbourhoods.

Presented in panels beside Atwater Market and dealing with 13 themes, the photos are supplemented by the comments of young people whose families have recently immigrated here.

Montrealers from various immigrant communities reveal their thoughts and feelings. What brought them to Montreal? Did they experience culture shock when they arrived? What helped them establish roots here? The MEM has gathered riveting stories of adaptation, personal perspectives in which Montreal emerges as a diversified, welcoming city.
