Art form: Visual Arts / Moving Image
Project name: Our Vision
Project information: The aim of this project is to equip students with the tools and knowledge of photographic and moving image practices to be able to articulate and express their unique cultural identity within a multicultural school and community. At the end of the project, students would exhibit their work to the school and wider surrounding community. The student would have a unique, permanent visual record of their thoughts and experiences in 2021.
Photography is a powerful tool that isn’t limited to language but rather walks side by side with universal symbols and motifs, that are easily understood by all people. By equipping students with the right tools to express themselves through universal symbolism, we will be able to give them the opportunity to voice their distinct experiences in a way that doesn’t limit them in the same way that language does.
By doing this we can open a discussion and open the understanding to know what it is like for these students to live in the communities they do, and for other students and staff to experience a slice of what their lives are like.
Project starting: May 2021
