Since January 1988 Marilyn has never stopped listening and learning. She has lead a culture at The Doorway operating with these principles. Her utmost respect and belief in young people’s lived experience and knowledge is reflected in filing cabinets filled with 30 years of young people’s writing. Furthermore, her undocumented conversations with over 1240 young people in our space throughout the past 30 years remains immeasurable, invaluable and constitute The Doorway’s magical ingredient of learning by listening.

Join us for two events as we celebrate the past 33 years Marilyn has devoted to The Doorway and the future of the archives and youth voice.

Living Documents 2 Book Launch

Join Humainologie, The Doorway and Journey Yoga to share and celebrate transformative journeys.

Humainologie CEO, Salima Stanley-Bhanji will share insights from her multiple journeys and 2000+ kilometres walking along the Camino de Santiago in Europe. We will also hear from Marilyn Dyck who has walked with The Doorway community for 30 years listening to young Calgarians transitioning out of life on the street and bravely journeying into their futures.  We will celebrate the launch of their collaborative publication ‘Living Documents 2’,  and together we will take a brief, meditative journey within ourselves guided by Mina Khan-Lee from Journey Yoga.
