The imagine change foundation has become a registered charity in Canada for projects within Canada and internationally. We are looking forward to the opportunities that charitable status will provide for our projects and to the youth participating in the projects.
The students and teacher at the Outma Sqilix’w Cultural School selected the images that they feel will work best as large format installations in the community. We will be printing and installing two billboards and one interior adhesive of the students work. The motivation is to offer insight into how the students see their community and generate awareness of the impact that the community has on the students.
A big thanks to the Penticton Museum and Library for supporting the imagine change project and hosting the Outma Sqilix’w Cultural School student image gallery show. The show will go from mid December into the new year. Please see the invite image for more details.
The student’s photographs made the front page of the Penticton Herald this week. The students work at the Penticton Museum and Library is on display for another 2 weeks.
Fujifilm Canada has loaned the imagine change project, and the Outma Sqilix’w Cultural School students 6 cameras for the project. A huge thank you, the students are very excited about the cameras and the images they will create as a result of their support. link to Fujifilm
We have started a new project with students at the Penticton Indian Band’s Outma Sqilix’w Cultural School. We are very excited for the next few months and the images that the students will generate. We are looking at documenting the project and combining it with other projects internationally. A big thanks to the principal Derek Stewart and the teacher that will be our main collaborator, Jesse Martin.
