Capturing Our Stories: An Exhibition of Syrian Children's Photography
Thursday, September 1, 2016

September 1, 2016 - September 10, 2016

We read and hear the stories of refugees coming to Canada from the perspective of the media and in the news, but what to do they want to say about their own lives and their own experiences?

Earlier this month, SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement partnered with the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Moving Ahead Program (MAP) to deliver a series of photography workshops to young Syrian children, with the goal of creating story-telling space to empower the kids to take hold over the narratives that define them. MAP supported children and parents during the whole process. The project aimed at giving them tools and information to explore the use of imagery and artistic expression to tell the stories of their lives.

The exhibition will be be open to the public during regular gallery hours.

Interurban Gallery Hours:
Sept 1: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Sept 2: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
