We’ve just launched our new Vimeo Channel featuring the incredible stories from Portraits of Connection. We’ll be uploading one story per week.
Right now, you can watch Sam’s beautiful recollection of a mentor that helped her learn to love herself.
Corin, Patti and their fantastic Emily Carr intern Mengyao are jumping into post production for the portrait project. These stories are so moving and honest. We can’t wait to launch them!
As part of their creative inquiry into the response of the “public parent,” Patti and Corin created a photo booth house to gather responses to the 19th Birthday Party installation.
Co-artistic directors Corin Browne and Patti Fraser will continue their exploration of the challenges and triumphs of youth aging out of government care in 2015/ 2016 with renewed support from the Vancouver Foundation’s Youth and Homelessness Initiative and Metro Vancouver’s Cultural Grants.
Its been a great run for The 19th Birthday Party Installation at UBC’s Wall Institute. We’ve been thrilled at the turnout and the media coverage. But most importantly, we’re really happy to be adding to the growing conversation about the enormous challenges faced by youth as they transition out of government care. We’re glad to hear that UBC is working toward joining several other post secondary institutions in providing free tuition for former youth in care. We’ll look forward to the official announcement!
This Monday, April 7th, Sharon and Corin will pack up the installation and bring it back to the east side. We’re joining an ATSA exhibit at Gallery Gachet until May 25th.
