One iteration of our collection was displayed Nov-Dec at THEMUSEUM, Kitchener while the final show was displayed at Kitchener Public Library the following March.

Grand River Hospital challenged all students with 5 themes (Compassion, Respect, Collaboration, Professionalism, Positive Attitude) and also invited youth, with a parent or guardian, to explore the hospital with their cameras and take photos of key areas within. The list of available spaces included many key areas including operating rooms, inpatient surgery, childbirth, children and emergency.

2012 with Waterloo Region District School Board

Our first year had us working with students from across the Waterloo Region District School Board. Secondary students developed pieces in their classes and Elementary students explored 5 different themes: The Wonders of Nature, The Art of Abstract Photography, My Best Friend Is My Pet, School Days, What Does Happiness Mean To Me?. A special thanks goes out to the WRDSB teachers who championed the concept, helped spread the word and challenged their students. The collection was displayed in May at Conestoga Mall, Waterloo.
