Trudeau fellow Ronald Rudin has launched the website for the Lost Stories Project, supported by his Trudeau fellowship. The project seeks out little-known stories about the Canadian past, transforms them into inexpensive works of public art, and documents the process in short films. The website features the project's pilot film, which tells the lost story of Thomas Widd, a deaf man who founded Montreal's Mackay School for the Deaf in the late nineteenth century.
