Education graduate student Nadia Chaney (right) and International Studies graduate student Shaheen Nanji are serving on the advisory group for the Engaging Diaspora in Development project, which will host its first dialogue at SFU’s Wosk Centre for Dialogue on January 19, 2011.

The event is sold out but there will be a live stream viewable on your computer.

If you’d like to participate, the CIDA-funded Engaging Diasporas project is looking for stories from members of diaspora communities in Vancouver, and will be holding four more dialogues in 2011.

Both students are representative of Vancouver’s wide-ranging cultural mosaic: Canadian-born poet and artist Nadia Chaney has a Muslim father and Catholic mother from India and Shaheen Nanji, who’s the Co-Director of the Diasporas Project and Director of International Development and Faculty Engagement in SFU International, was born in Nairobi and moved to Vancouver in 1989.
