women of all ages who have lived conflicts with the law with the goal of bettering the conditions of their lives
Dominant Media Forms
The CFAD photo project aims to nurture creative expression and self-representation among children and youth of parents living below the poverty line and with lived conflicts with law.
Statement of Principles
The goal of the photo project is to give voice to our experiences, our everyday lives, our neighbourhood, and the many communities which we’re a part of.
Through the project, and the exhibition, we hope to build the space for creative dialogue, and in the process create stronger communities of support, solidarity, and youth empowerment; to build strength in our informal networks of families, chosen families, friends, partners and children.
