LANDSCAPE OF HOPE
Landscape of Hope is a unique, sample-based remixing project that magnifies youth narratives as they pertain to building resilience against racism, discrimination, prejudice and cyber bullying.
The digital art initiative is youth-led and designed to empower them with critical digital literacy skills and social media tools to create cutting-edge multimedia performances and installations that describe their experiences with hate, discrimination and cyber bullying. Our aim is to implement and evaluate a sustainable, multi-sectoral, culturally-relevant, youth-led approach to creating media-based narratives that accurately reflect youths’ lived experiences, with the ultimate objective of reducing instances of discrimination.
This project is funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ), Canadian Heritage, and the Michaëlle Jean Foundation.
