Photovoice combines photography with community development and social action. Photovoice believes that nobody should be denied the right to speak out and be heard. Photovoices enables individuals to represent themselves and create tools for advocacy and communication with the goals of delivering positive social change.
The purpose of this project was to use photography as a medium of expression to understand youth perspectives and experiences around issues of homelessness, capturing their realities of life in Edmonton. This project engaged youth to think about their communities and raise issues that are important to them.
To help youth frame their story, we asked youth four questions. For each question, the youth took one photo and provided a written response.
This project was made possible by the participation and support of the Bredin Centre for Learning - Foyer Program, iHuman Youth Society, and E4C Inner City Youth Housing Project.
