Supported by two staff from Cultural Services, City of Kingston, and KCHC's Immigrant Services Youth Settlement Worker, a group of six immigrant and refugee youth met once a week for a period of three months to develop their stories (August - September 2013).
Made In... Film Camp
Our youth participated in a full-day week-long Film Camp at the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning. They learned about film-making, photography, claymation and interview techniques, and were empowered to create and edit short videos about their personal lives (July 2015).
Our youth hosted a fundraiser at Crossroads United Church on Tuesday, March 8th 2016. They shared their life stories, displayed talents (singing, dancing and playing instruments) and screened the 2-minute videos that they created at the Made In... Film Camp.
MadeInYGK.com Launch Party
On March 10th, 2015, our youth hosted a community event at Kingston City Hall where eight of them read their life stories to the audience. Over fifty community members attended the event; they were moved by the stories.
Viva Voce: Roots
The Kingston Frontenac Public Library invited us to tell our stories at the Viva Voce: Roots event that was held at the Isabel Turner Library (August 6th, 2015).
