As we approach our third year as part of the SPARK Photo Festival we are excited to present our exhibit about the relationship of nature and youth homelessness. We will be at Pappas Billiards on George St. once again this year.
The YES Shelter is happy to be bringing the photography of the youth in our community to the SPARK festival.
“When you’re homeless you feel isolated, you’re not a part of the greater community, you feel like a burden on the greater community and you’re not as accepted.”- Previously homeless youth.
Youth who participated in SPARK in the past often felt like they weren’t a part of the community. Through their participation in SPARK that changed. It gave them a bridge to the community, a common ground, art.
We welcome you to join us to view our photography at a reception on the 5th from 7 to 9 pm at Pappas Billiards.
