A unique photography exhibit inspired by Toronto’s Jamestown neighbourhood comes to the Arts Etobicoke Gallery Thurs, May 1 - Thurs, May 29, 2008. Through Our Eyes: A Jamestown Youth Photography Project features the work of young Jamestown artists who explored their neighbourhood through the lens of camera as a part of a three-month project in 2006 designed in support of Toronto City Council’s Community Safety Plan (Neighbourhood Action) and in partnership with Red Pepper Spectacle Arts.
Also displayed at the 2007 urbanNOISE Festival, this exciting show arrives at Arts Etobicoke to coincide with Toronto’s annual CONTACT photography festival. Through Our Eyes contains poignant images that reflect experiences, scenes and issues related to the Jamestown neighborhood. With great creativity and unique perspective, these young artists allow us to get a glimpse of their community as they see it.
