TC Media’s Atlantic papers launch unique storytelling initiative

August 28, 2014

TC Media has launched a unique multimedia project titled “A Week That Changed Our World.” The initiative features a series of poignant stories, photos and videos that capture engaging and touching moments from across Atlantic Canada.

According to TC Media, “this project is a look at a different kind of story—the kind of story that resonates because you can imagine yourself being there, can remember a pang of loss, can feel the pinch of someone else’s shoes.”

The initiative runs from Monday, August 25 to Sunday, August 31 in all TC Media daily and weekly newspapers across the region.
