Newcomer Youth Photography Project

Artist Statement
The SPARK/New Canadians Centre Newcomer Youth Photography Project equips youth (ages 12 to 19) with cameras to teach technical skills and the basics of visual storytelling. The goal is to build confidence, language, and presentation skills through a visual representation of the community. The youth will participate in two public exhibits: a preview at ReFrame, culminating in a large photo exhibit at SPARK in April.
