Watershed Productions is working with Freedom Quest Regional Youth Services. With the funds received from the Columbia Basin Trust we will produce a PhotoVoice video focused on marginalized and at-risk youth from the West Kootenay, which will be showcased at the Creating Caring Communities conference in May 2015 in Castlegar. The project will build awareness about youth and their experiences with substance use and mental health.

Join filmmaker and educator, Amy Bohigian, to explore how art has been used to engender social change and peace in a variety of settings at the next Mir Peace Cafe called “Art for Social Change”. We will discuss a handful of exemplary arts-based community development projects within the context of how we can positively engage artists and community stakeholders around a particular issue to create social change. It’s a great fit for individuals working in the social sector looking to explore arts-based community development and for activist minded artists.
