|Tillikum Lens Photo Exhibition Opening
Take a walk in my shoes and see the world that I see.
Join us for a photo gallery opening hosted by Tillikum Lens, a program dedicated to empower indigenous youth through image making. Photos that will be displayed were all taken by youth, with the help of experienced instructors who work with local communities and organizations to promote diverse perspectives and cross-cultural understanding.
To learn more about Tillikum Lens, please read the outline.
“People are drawn to different mediums for creative purposes. What we saw within our youth that took part in Tillikum Lens is they not only learned to be creative but began to witness the world around them and document it. For a young person who may not feel they have a place, or purpose in this world this is a massive realization, they became aware and, they belong to that moment. That moment they record has a story and now they are a part of it.” – Osoyoos Indian Band
Join us for an evening of creativity, stories and music celebrating indigenous youth.
Open to all ages. Light refreshments will be served.
