Our City, Our Stories: Digital Photography Workshop Series and Contest
October 5 – November 10, 2009
Our City, Our Stories was a series of innovative digital photography workshops for youth presented in collaboration by the City of Toronto, Canon, and various partner organizations. The SAC hosted a group of youth in the Eglinton East-Kennedy Park neighbourhood, who met twice weekly under the guidance of established photographer and artist instructor Alexandra Gelis. The workshops were conducted in the new Pro-Tech media Lab, located within the Kennedy/Eglinton branch of the Toronto Public Library.
Upon conclusion of the workshops, SAC, Toronto Culture, and East Metro Youth Services hosted an exhibition of photographs taken throughout the program. The exhibition was mounted at East Metro Youth Services, where participants from three OCOS groups came together to eat, socialize and celebrate their achievements.
