Virtual Museum

You are here

The main deliverable of the project will be a Virtual Museum,an online portal encompassing the Greek-Canadian immigrant experience from Greece to Canada. The Virtual Museum will unfold Greek history in Canada by providing the following: access to timelines, interactive maps and historical commentary; archival databases and links to relevant sources; primary sources that document the Greek-Canadian immigrant experience and the communities under investigation; oral and visual material that will illustrate the social and cultural ethnic life between 1949 and 1979. One will be able to follow individual immigrant trajectories from the departure point to the arrival one.

The ImmiGreC project is sponsored by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
