ALL ABOUT THE MOST VIBRANT,
CULTURALLY DIVERSE NEIGHBOURHOOD IN VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA

Profile: Christine Germano - Photographer


Artist-In-Residence - Britannia Community Centre

Recently appointed to the Brit post, Germano heads up “Through Our Eyes©”, a photo documentary project in which the children of a school (to date over eight First Nations communities across BC and Alberta) think about “what their community means to them”. The students then photograph their topic, write accompanying text and record their stories for a visual and audio presentation. The final exhibition gives the community an opportunity to celebrate the student’s artistic achievements, hopefully fostering in them an interest in continuing to seek similar artistic opportunities throughout their lives.

The Roundhouse Community Centre will be hosting a retrospective February 4-11, featuring 200 prints by some of the 400 aboriginal youth who have participated in the program since its inception 4 years ago.

Part of the 6th annual Talking Stick Festival, there will be a special reception with an artist talk by Germano and some of her participants. The show will also launch a new book of prints (on sale at the reception for $25) as well as a revamped website: http://www.through-our-eyes.ca
Below are some samples of participants' work.
