Our Stories

The oral histories that you will hear deal with personal, sensitive, and upsetting situations. Every attempt was made to be respectful of those brave enough to share their lives with you. Please take the time to honor their courage.

Featuring the powerful personal stories of survivors of eugenics and newgenics, these video narratives cross between eugenics past and present; all videos are closed captioned.

Supina III, Nick

Nick is an artist who explores the themes of isolation, labels and disability. He feels a deep connection to the legacy of eugenics in Alberta. He knows had he been born just a few years earlier, he likely would have been institutionalized and sterilized himself. Moved by the stories of survivors, Nick has created a series of works representing the legacy of eugenics in Alberta.
