Voice and Place: Culture, Community and Belonging
A culturally diverse photographic exploration of Greater Victoria
The Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria (ICA) invited a group of 23 newcomers to the region to take part in intensive training in photojournalism with local photographer Quinton Gordon. Each participant worked through the following core themes: Friends & Family, Community, Fears, and Hopes & Dreams. Through these themes, the photographers examined their individual experience and sense of place in the community. Out of the 7000 images that came out of that process, 19 were chosen to be part of this exhibition, images of what makes community welcoming for these photographers.
The interactive web component of the exhibition was developed through a series of regional community mapping workshops including a diverse cross-section of participants, and is ongoing, allowing all viewers an opportunity to participate in the project by adding their own images to a community map.
On May 12, 2012 this exihibit launched at the Arts Centre at Cedar Hill, 3220 Cedar Hill Rd, Saanich.
Show your Diversity! Voice & Place: Culture, Community, and Belonging is a travelling exhibit. To find out more about the launch and how you can host this exhibition featuring 17 banner stands and a slide show, click here.
