Colombians are the largest Spanish speaking community in London, Ontario. In the last three decades, hundreds of Colombian families came to Canada and settled in this area, making it their new home (1990s-to date). The term ‘Londombia’, as they jokingly refer to the city, speaks volumes about their sense of belonging.
‘Londombia’ is a photo exhibition that celebrates the presence and many contributions of the Colombian community in London. It is the result of a crowd-sourced, participatory process. It showcases the life of the Colombians in London through images sourced from their personal and family albums. The participants generously contributed photos and videos that depict their arrival and settlement in the city. Its production was supported by the City of London through the London Heritage Council – Community Heritage Investment Program and will be presented in association with several partners: Satellite Project Space, CulturX, and Embassy Cultural House.
