Welcome to September, Dream Chaser’s!
We’re stepping into this month with positive minds, good work ethic and continuous progress. Let’s get right into it.
As the Co-Art Director and Photographer of the Young Migrants Project, I’m excited to announce that we will be showcased in FULL scale at the Toronto Media Arts Centre on September 27th, 2018. Our project will be showcased amongst other very talented and beautiful artists in a series called Unbound: Stories From Behind The Dust with our friends and sponsors at This is Worldtown!
I can’t believe we are finally here and finally making this happen.
If you don’t already know, the Young Migrants Project was born from the hands and minds of a Sisterhood Media and Aleia Robinson Photography collaboration. Together we have have created an incredible project that represents the migration of first and second generation immigrants from around the world to right here in our own city of Toronto.
In early January, my project partner, Samah, and I sent out a call through our social media platforms asking for participants to volunteer and be a part of our journey in documenting and getting to know our fellow 1st and 2nd generation immigrant community. Without a doubt the support of our people came through. Emails were flooding into our inboxes and social media direct messaging. So many people we're interested and wanting to be a part of a project where they could share their migration stories with us! Young Migrants from all over the GTA we’re responding to the call, we spent hours and months planning, shooting and creating this project so that our vision could come to life.
Through this project we’ve had the opportunity to meet so many incredible individuals and learn their stories. Each story has it’s own trials and tribulations, however, every story is relatable to people of the diaspora. To learn more about the project, check out an earlier blog post of mine, The Young Migrants Project in partnership with Sisterhood Media, and don’t forget to come out September 27th!
