EDUCATION + OUTREACH COORDINATOR | PRESENTATION HOUSE GALLERY
Winter 2012 | North Vancouver, BC

A major part of this role involved running the annual youth photo contest, Chester Fields. For the 2012 season I asked North Shore youth to create dynamic re-examinations of archival material, culminating with an exhibition titled, Double Take. Students were asked to give a contemporary twist to material sourced from personal collections or the North Vancouver Museum and Archives by reinterpreting these images alongside their own photographic work. The role of "chester" also involved maintaing and updating a blog as an additional resource to students.
