Canada Caught on Camera
Opens Thursday March 30th, 7pm
Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) is a non-profit organization supporting literacy needs in our community for both Canadian born residents and newcomers to Canada.
Canada Caught on Camera is a multicultural project bringing these two groups together in a way that goes beyond words. Photography is universal and does not rely on a common spoken language to build understanding.
The artists in this project include Sadie Howse, Hiromi Hino, Pruthvi Harshan, Laura Bentley, Bronwen Handscombe, Martin Rabovsky, Patty Villasenor, Mina Deguzman, Kyle Hamilton, and Chrisy Hill.
Each artist received photography tips from Kyle Hamilton and spent 3 months finding photographic representation to share their visions of Canada. The goal is to build understanding between the diverse cultures making up our communities.
The Canada Caught on Camera project includes two photos from each artist. Photos may represent inclusion, exclusion, how different cultures make us simultaneously similar and different, or what being Canadian means to the photographer. Each artist has used his or her own experiences and perspectives to capture the theme of the project.
