Community Projects

Community is an important and integral part of our daily lives. I am grateful for having the opportunity to gather on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. During my time in Vancouver, I have taken the opportunity to educate myself on the histories and people of this land. In doing so, I have developed new ways of being, knowing and understanding. I have also surrounded myself with people that strive to build an equitable and inclusive community for all no matter their race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. As a photographer, I wish to share my knowledge and gift with others in the Vancouver community and also learn about their experiences and journey that brought them here. Below is an example of a community project I am spearheading that aims to build community during the trying times of COVID-19. This Neighbourhood Small Grant project was funded by the Vancouver Foundation and administered by Kitsilano Neighbourhood House.
