From February 4 to April 16, come to Bradley Museum for a storytelling experience expressed through audio and still images created by newcomer youth. The iAM project focuses on exploring the concept of home and aims to open conversations on human rights stories through art. Youth from Syria, Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia took part in mobile photography workshops with Toronto-based artists.
While you’re at Bradley Museum, share your own story of home and what it means to you in the interactive video booth in the Anchorage House.
The iAM project is presented by JAYU. JAYU’s founder, Gilad Cohen, is an artist and human rights advocate. Feeling the need to raise more awareness in his own community, Gilad launched JAYU in 2012, using art as the main vehicle. He is currently the co-host of The Hum Podcast, a weekly human rights show featured on iTunes and Rabble. Gilad and JAYU are committed to providing empowerment projects that provide arts based mentorship and education to communities that lack access.
Monday to Wednesday by appointment
Thursday to Sunday noon – 4 p.m.
