“The Experiment” is yet another one of the amazing pieces that was shown at our first exhibit — “The Persona”.
The short film was written, produced and directed by The Young Visionaries’ own Jacky Vuong and it combines Jacky’s love of photography and cinematography by creating a compelling narrative through a series of dramatic black and white photographs.
The beautifully shot project was created to be an introspective commentary on Jacky’s journey as an artist and you should definitely check it out!
Kate helped to develop The Young Visionaries and her organization involves 10 young artists. My City My Story students are given a forum to share resources, take advantage of mentorship and they are also provided with critical feedback, so as to develop a series of photographs about community, identity or social justice.
The space is supplemented with knowledge sharing by like-minded artists and educators from academic, community and industry backgrounds. Over 6 months the group will explore their personal connection to their art form and subjects and build their technical skills through the creation of deeply felt works produced with the highest standard of artistic integrity.
The program will culminate in a group show in the 2013 Scotia Bank Contact Photography Festival.
All Toronto-based youth that are interested in becoming a part of My City My Story should download and fill out the following application form!: tinyurl.com/9wytonf.
