Concordia University/CBC series explores stories from Montreal's St-Henri neighbourhood

(Corinne Smith)

St-Henri Chronicles is a collaboration between the Department of Journalism at Concordia University, and CBC Montreal.

Students in a graduate-level multimedia course were asked to find and produce original stories on St-Henri for their final class project.

They spent the winter term developing these stories, and experimented with sound, pictures, video, infographics and maps to tell them.
