Created by Founder and Artistic Director Ashima Suri, ROUTE 2 ROOTS is a multidisciplinary arts and storytelling experience that includes a series of community arts based workshops culminating into a live activation. 

The process of migration can be overwhelming and jarring. ROUTE 2 ROOTS is designed to be a creative communication hub where newcomers and individuals who have lived in Canada for several years, can come together and speak about their historical and ancestral roots in a fun and creative way. 

Through various forms of exploration, curiosity and movement, we bring the stories to life through a public activation.
